The Best Sod and Grass Seed Types for Chula Vista

Chula Vista boasts beautiful scenery from water front properties and beaches to gorgeous hillside homes, decorated with beautiful gardens and sod lawns. Chula Vista has a unique environment being arid at times but also very humid due to being in the southern part of California. Sod and grass seed is very popular, along with plug options for alternative ground covers and Bermudas. In the absence of seed options for hybrid bermudas, grass seed and plugs for alternative ground covers are very common in Chula Vista.

Our list may differ from others in the sense that last year we saw a shift in popularity go from sod and grass seed to alternative ground covers. By sod or lawn alternatives we mean groundcovers vs hardscapes due to the nature of our work. This list kicks off with our best selling alternative ground cover, Kurapia, along with plenty of diverse sod and grass seed options. All of our options listed below are dog-friendly or pet-friendly and environmentally-friendly as well. 

The Best Types of Sod and Grass Seed for Chula Vista, CA

Kurapia Ground Cover

Kurapia ground cover has been the most increasingly popular lawn alternative in Chula Vista. Kurapia has grown in popularity for five simple reasons: Kurapia is significantly more drought tolerant than traditional sod, Kurapia ground cover is low maintenance requiring less water and never needing to be mowed, Kurapia ground cover is highly weed resistant, helps with erosion control and is aesthetically pleasing!


West Coaster Tall Fescue Sod

Our West Coaster Tall Fescue Sod is a cool season grass that is a top seller in Chula Vista for many reasons, but a few perks stick out more than the others. Firstly, our West Coaster Tall Fescue Sod is drought and heat tolerant, making it an excellent option for both the cool weather and warm weather. Additionally, our West Coaster Tall Fescue Sod is great for area with higher foot traffic such as areas for sports or kids play.

St. Augustine grass is one of the most popular warm season grasses in Southern California.

St. Augustine grass is best known for its shade tolerance, drought tolerance, pest and disease resistance, as well as having an aesthetically pleasing look. 


TIF TUF Bermuda Grass

TIF TUF, a warm-season, hybrid bermuda grass, is one of the better bermudas on the market for Chula Vista. TIF TUF is a refined hybrid bermuda that is an excellent choice for Chula Vista property owners because it is drought tolerant, thrives in hot and dry climates, has high wear tolerance and is weed resistant. If you're on the hunt for a lawn that will be for athletic and active use, TIF TUF may be the better choice!

Our 100% Perennial Rye Grass Seed is excellent for overseeding hybrid bermuda grasses during their winter dormancy period.
