California Bentgrass - Agrostis pallens is a True California Native Meadow Grass
It can handle heat and survive drought. This gold-tipped bentgrass is the closest thing to conventional sod that native grass is currently capable of (check out this recent LA Times article for what's next). Without mowing it gets 12-18" long and takes on a warm soft green look. Bentgrass can also take a bimonthly mowing schedule all the way down to 2" high.
50% more Drought Tolerant than Conventional Lawn Sod
These gorgeous grass lawns are very resilient to California climate extremes and can handle a little soccer (without the cleats)! Mow them like a conventional lawn or let them grow to their natural 12" height for a lush, romantic feel. Mix in yarrow or golden poppies for a micro-meadow.
What's unconventional about Bentgrass?
Native bentgrass browns out in patches in high summer heat. But quickly greens up when the weather cools. If you prefer an old-fashioned lawn look (close cropped and year-round green) than Alt Lawn Ultra is your best bet until grass breeders come up with something new.
This Grass's drought-tolerance improves when left long. Great in part shade or full sun. Over-watering can attract pests.
