TifTuf® Bermuda - Tough and Beautiful Bermudagrass

Stingy With Water, Sunlight, and Your Budget.

Long dry summers can be brutal on turf—and even more so on your water bill. TifTuf® Bermudagrass was developed with this challenge in mind. This fine-textured, green leaf beauty uses 38% less water than similar grass cultivars… and still looks great. And just as important, TifTuf® Bermudagrass has a high shade tolerance. When cooler autumn temperatures arrive, it stays greener further into the season. It all makes you wonder: how can something so tough and resilient be so gorgeous?
