Native Grass SOD

California Native Sod

Native grasses are adapted to our seasonally dry California climate. California Native Sod grown by our grower partner Delta Bluegrass has been installed in many urban landscapes, parks, edges of golf courses and streetscapes. Native Preservation Mix, Biofiltration Sod and Delta Grassland Mix Sod are available for planting throughout the year.

We recommend installing Native Bentgrass Sod and the Native Mow Free Sod as a lawn alternative in late Fall. This will allow these cool season native grasses to better establish in the cooler, wetter, winter weather. 

Once established, all blends will require approximately 50% less water than traditional sod varieties. All blends available on biodegradable netting.

  • Native Bentgrass™, Agostis pallens   Agrostis pallens is a cool-season California native bentgrass, with a uniform growing habit, medium texture, and deep green color. Native bentgrass thrives in full sun, or partial shade and will tolerate light foot traffic, with good recovery due to spreading rhizomes. Delta Bluegrass' own irrigation trials indicate that Native Bentgrass requires about half the water (50 % ET) of a traditional cool-season grass to keep the lawn green throughout the year.

  • Native Mow Free™, A blend of California native fescue grasses that can be maintained as a turf lawn, or left unmowed to create a meadow like appearance. 

  • Biofiltration Sod™, A combination of dryland and wetland species that can tolerate drought conditions and limited amounts of standing water. Excellent stabilization and immediate erosion control.
