Hello, everyone. I have 2 large labs and about 7,000 sq. ft. of grass to put in. I wanted Marathon because of the look and color, but heard that it does not hold up well to dog urine and the day-to-day wear and tear. I heard that either St. Augestine or Zoyzia would stand up well. Does anyone have any input on what would hold up well to dogs in SoCal? Thanks alot.

Hybrid Bermudagrasses would be ideal for your climate and lawn use.while no grass is impervious to damage from digging or urine spots, bermuda is a fast grower that spreads to fill in damanged spots.it does go off-color in winter, and needs to be mowed with a reel-bladed mower, but is really the besst choice for a heavy traffic lawn.Try Tifway. Great color, tight surface, fine blades, grown by most sod farms in Southern CA! Install in spring for best results!Good luck!
