Once you’ve decided to install sod, the next step to achieving a lush landscape is to choose your turfgrass variety. At Bell Sod and Hydroseed we recommend Dwarf Fescue Bluegrass for homes in greater Sacramento and nearby regions. The expert blend of tall Fescue and Kentucky bluegrass keeps California lawns looking lush year round, rain or shine.
Why We Choose Dwarf Fescue Bluegrass
Sacramento residents deal with harsh weather conditions that make growing and maintaining healthy lawns a challenge. Between heavy rains, erosion, and seasons of drought, many turfgrasses turn brown and patchy no matter how well you tend them. Dwarf Fescue Bluegrass has an expansive root system that grows over four feet deep when properly established. It has a slender, rich-hued leaf with better texture and more visually appeal than the old varieties of fescue. This hybrid sod blends the fine blades and cold tolerance of Kentucky Bluegrasses with the drought and traffic resistance of Fescue to create a California sod that looks great in any season.
Other Sod Varieties for California Lawns
Many turfgrasses flounder in the hot, wet regions of the Sacramento Bay area. Sod varieties require too much water, can’t withstand the heat and cold, or become too invasive in flowerbeds and other parts of the landscape. Dwarf Fescue Bluegrass thrives in residential lawns, but it’s a relatively recent hybrid. Bell Sod and Hydroseed installs Perennial Rye to match older lawns and to provide ample durability for sports fields. Ryegrass can withstands abuse better than most sod varieties, but requires more watering, fertilization, and overall care to remain healthy.
We deliver thick, weed-free sod right to your doorstep. All our turfgrasses are locally grown and cut, guaranteeing freshness and compatibility with the landscape. For more information on buying quality Sacramento sod, call Bell Sod and Hydroseed.
