If you are considering replacing your grass or establishing new landscaping, it’s important to understand what type of sod is best for the Colorado climate.
The best type of sod for Colorado would be a cool-season grass like Kentucky Bluegrass, Fine Fescue, or Perennial Rye grass. These types of grasses can handle the cold winters and relatively hot summers in the state.
Perhaps you are looking for a sod that doesn’t require much water, as Colorado can have long dry spells. For a less water-intensive sod, native warm-season grasses like Buffalo Grass and Blue Grama Grass are known to be more drought-tolerant and require less water.
If you are looking for a type of sod that requires less fertilizer, less water, and less mowing, a low-maintenance variety like Fine Fescue would be a good choice. These types of grasses are naturally drought-resistant and don't require frequent fertilization.
