Delta Bluegrass Turf Demonstration Area

Stop by to check out the California native grasses on display near the Visitor & Education Center. Stockton-based Delta Bluegrass Company provided and installed the sod, which requires 50 – 70% percent less water than traditional cool season turf and will stay green all year when irrigated. The demonstration area features five varieties – Biofiltration Sod™, Native Preservation Mix™, Delta Grassland Mix™, Native Bentgrass™ and Native Mow-Free™ – that the company developed from native grass seed. For more information, visit their web site. Many thanks to San Jose’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services staff for their assistance with this project.

 

These demo plots are watered 3 days a week, 15-20 minutes per session. Recycled water is used.
