There is no such thing as a shade lawn as all lawns need sunlight, however L.M.Berea and Buffalo Lawn are more shade tolerant, but a much harder and more difficult lawn to grow successfully.
Fast growing and very healthy lawns need to be moved once a week in summer. In winter this can be trimmed down to once every two to three weeks, depending on the growth.
It is always best to water your garden in the morning to ensure maximum replenishment to replace the moisture that the heat of the sun removes during the course of the day. The quantity is dependent on how established the garden is i.e. more water for less established gardens and vice versa.
If you would prefer to stay organic on your garden I would recommend all Nutrog products like Bounce Back for general fertilizing or you could use 7.1.3 or 2.3.2 for lawn and bed applications.
A general rule of thumb is to transplant any plant when it is not seeding or flowering, but most flowering plants flower in summer which means most plants prefer to be transplanted in winter where there are cooler and wetter conditions.
