Recommend a lawn grass type to conserve water in northern California

4 years ago

We are installing grass and would like some input - there seem to be a ton of fescue type lawns and parks in our area (Tracy/Manteca 1 hour East of San Francisco) - while there isn't a water crisis right now we would like to make sure we don't have to remove the lawn if things get tough. We are on a sloping lakefront property - full sun - and the (hard) water supply comes from a community well. The use is mostly aesthetic - no kids or sports though we do have a golden retriever. Alternatives to sod would be OK if they were short and full coverage grassy.
