Bermuda Grass or Bermudagrass


By ProMatcher Staff





This type of sod wears well and stays green longer than other warm-season grasses. It is somewhat drought tolerant, but thrives when given abundant water. It is also known for establishing itself rapidly.

One of the most widely used grasses in warmer regions. Bermuda grass is most commonly found on the West Coast in and southern regions.

It grows from runners both above and below ground. It does poorly in shade. With poor water conditions it turns brown, but does not die. The more water it receives, the greener it turns.

It is used for golf courses and athletic fields.

Green all summer long and goes dormant in winter. Helps save water in desert regions.

Many types of Bermuda varieties, including:

- Tifton is a course, low maintenance hybrid that is easy to mow.

- Tifgreen is a good lawn variety for hot regions.

- Princess 77 is a good lawn sod

- NuMex Sahara

- Guymon is good in cooler regions of the southwest. Greens up sooner in the spring and can tolerate cold weather.

Maintenance Guidelines:

- 3/4 to 1 inch mowing height is advised.

- 2 inches of water per week.

- Soil 6 inches deep.
