TifTuf prefers sunlight, ranging from full sun to partial shade. It may not thrive in full shade, but it is more shade-tolerant compared to other Bermuda grass varieties.
TifTuf is a resilient and beautiful Bermuda grass, ideal for areas that require the most drought-tolerant grass. It took more than two decades of research for the University of Georgia, the global leader in turf grass breeding, to come up with this variety. This fine-textured, green leaf turf has been hand-picked from more than 30,000 different Bermuda grass varieties, exhibiting outstanding potential in drought resistance, shade tolerance, and wear tolerance. It uses 38% less water compared to similar grasses while upholding exceptional turf quality.
TifTuf Bermuda grass grows low to the ground, spreading readily by sending out rhizomes and stolons. Rhizomes are root-like shoots that spread under the soil surface. Stolons, on the other hand, are new shoots that spread above the soil surface. TifTuf’s ability to spread fast makes it ideal for areas that require recovery. It’s also a self-repairing turf that can withstand a lot of wear and tear.
Bermuda grass needs regular mowing. Otherwise, it will form seed heads and drop an abundance of seeds in the immediate area. Wind may then disperse the seeds to other places where you don’t want grass. A great benefit of using seeded Bermuda grass is that these grass varieties are propagated from seed. Seed propagation makes planting and establishing a new lawn much faster and cost-effective than establishing vegetative types of grass. If you want to establish Bermuda grass from seed, you’ll need to irrigate your yard consistently as the seeds germinate. Make sure you cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil, in addition to mulch. You should water your lawn twice per day to 1-2cm depth for your Bermuda grass to develop into a strong, healthy turf.
TifTuf is one of the finest and most drought-tolerant couch grasses available in Australia. Couch grass looks like a tuft of any grass, but the roots form a dense network below the soil surface. This type of grass spreads fast with the help of thin, wiry, and sharp-tipped rhizomes. From the tips, new shoots emerge that quickly produce fresh leaves and more rhizomes.
