Answer: The most commonly planted turfgrasses in your region are Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass, Tall Fescue and Burmuda Grass. All prefer full sunshine. If you have a shady site, you might want to visit the following website (http://ucrturf.ucr.edu/home/anrcatalog.htm) and click on the publication "Turfgrass Selection for the Home Landscape". It outlines turfgrass establishment as well as mixtures for partly sunny sites.
Best wishes with your new lawn!
