1. Tall Fescue with Kentucky Bluegrass 90/10 Sod

Our Delta Tall 9010 is a mix of Tall Fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass. It will be delivered on a highly organic peat soil base, making it a safer option for your family - kids and pets! The Delta Tall 9010 has many key features that make it ideal for Stockton. First, the Delta Tall 9010 is our most drought tolerant grass and also offers excellent heat tolerance. Secondly, our Tall Fescue Mix has above average wear and tear recovery, making it a perfect sod lawn option for recreational use, including dogs and children. Because our Fescue Bluegrass Mix tolerates and recovers best from heavier foot traffic, it makes the perfect lawn for the next annual 4th of July barbecue or birthday party.

Our Bolero Plus is one of the most popular choices for the greater Stockton area! Our Bolero Plus Dwarf Fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass Mix offers similar benefits as our Delta Tall 9010 but with lower maintenance needs. So, our Bolero Plus works great for lawn owners who do not want to mow every week or even every other week due to its slower growth pattern. This Dwarf Fescue Mix is also ideal for areas with moderate foot traffic, for example, families with medium sized dogs. With a finer and slower growing blade, our Bolero Plus Dwarf Fescue Bluegrass Mix will provide your lawn the benefits needed in Stockton but with reduced lawn care needs. Last but not least, the Bolero Plus will provide drought and heat tolerance for the days in Stockton with higher temperatures!

3. Kurapia Ground Cover

Kurapia ground cover has become an increasingly popular lawn choice in California, especially in Stockton. Kurapia ground cover loves the higher temperatures in Stockton and can also survive its lower end temperatures. Most markedly, Kurapia ground cover has become popular for its low maintenance features. Kurapia ground cover is highly water-conserving, saving both time and money spent on irrigation. Similarly, Kurapia ground cover does not require mowing. Yes, that means you technically never have to mow your Kurapia ground cover. Kurapia ground cover can be mowed or trimmed based on personal preferences, but it is not necessary. Kurapia blooms miniature white flowers twice annually which support both pollination and its curb appeal. Now you know why Kurapia ground cover is so popular in Stockton and all of California!



4. Special Shade Blend Mix Sod

Our Shade Blend Mix has become popular in Stockton for its dual ability to thrive both in full sun and partially shaded areas. Because of its warmer weather, many residential and commercial property owners in Stockton invest in trees for their landscape to provide shaded areas for warmer days. This is where the Shade Blend comes in - it can tolerate both full sun as well as partially shaded areas. We get lots of calls from lawn owners explaining that half their lawn is in shade and half in full sun, which is another instance in which the Shade Blend makes an ideal grass! Note, we recommend any lawn receive at least 6 hours daily of direct or filtered sun. It will also provide many of the same benefits as the other fescue hybrids such as heat tolerance, drought tolerance and wear and tear recovery.  



Special Shade Blend Mix Grass Seed

A major benefit to our Shade Blend Mix Sod is that we also offer the same farm-grade, high-quality seed used to grow it. CLICK HERE to check out our Shade Blend Grass Seed. You can purchase it when needed or at the time you order your sod. 

5. Bermuda Grass

Bermuda grass is another great and popular option for Stockton, California! One of the biggest differences between our Bermudagrass selections and fescue options is that our bermudagrasses will go dormant in the winter. However, it is common to overseed Bermuda grass lawns with perennial ryegrass seed to maintain its green color year-round. Our top Bermuda grass option is our Celebration Bermuda, boasting the highest ratings possible for drought tolerance, disease tolerance and heat tolerance.

  • I prefer the Latitude 36 Bermuda Grass. This sod is fantastic in property and perfect for high-traffic areas. The grass is soft and thick. The color is a rich green all year round.
