T10™ Certified Bermuda is a medium to coarse bladed selection that has a unique dark-bluish color, with excellent cold hardiness and was developed by the University of Georgia’s world renowned turfgrass breeding team at Tifton, Georgia.

T10™ is considered to be a low maintenance bermudagrass. This is due to the fact that the open canopy and slower vertical leaf-blade growth allows for ease of mowing utilizing a standard rotary mower. Additionally, mowing frequency can be reduced up to 50% compared to many other bermudagrass cultivars, again due to its reduced rate of vertical leaf-blade growth.

Further, T10™ is considered an excellent choice for high traffic applications such as residential yards, golf course driving ranges and athletic fields from the deep-south to well into the transition zone. Though T10™ is a relatively slow grower vertically; it is a prolific producer laterally. This rapid horizontal growth characteristic provides a tough, durable playing surface that recovers quickly from sports activities, foot and equipment traffic.
