groung cover

I recently planted a new lawn in a new home, and have come to realize that as the season is winding down the amount of sunlight the recieves is also diminshing. im almost positive that by fall the lawn will see no direct sun. the lawn has already not done very well in the most shaded area. i am concerned that the grass will continue to die. so my questions are, 1) should i keep the grass, a dwarf fescue, i believe, and ride out the winter months(in northern california=rain)? or is there a nice ground cover that is more shade tolerant?

Grass plain just doesn't do well in the shade, less than 4 hours of sun per day. Here is a list of ground covers for you. You might check with the local extension service as to which ones do best in your locale.

Hope this helps.
