Grass Variety

Available Now. Patriot Bermuda is a product of Oklahoma State University. Patriot has a beautiful blue-green color and a wider blade than Tifway. It has been found that Patriot can tolerate very cold weather, and is being used on the Philadelphia Eagles and Virginia Tech University football fields. Patriot is a great choice for athletic fields as well as home lawns and golf courses. Patriot is grown year-round at NG Turf and can be installed as dormant sod during winter months.

Installation Techniques
Sod is the best way for instant beauty and a lush yard. Water the sod as you lay it. Do not wait until you are finished to water it. It will take about two to three weeks for complete establishment.

Maintenance Instructions
Recommended mowing height is 1 to 2 inches, removing no more than 1/3 total height at one time. In the spring do not apply nitrogen containing fertilizers until the soil temperature at 4 inches is 65 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. Ideal pH for bermudas are 5.5 - 6.5. Follow fertilizer recommendations on soil test report. You can do this through your local county extension agent. Don't know your county extension agent? Find them here!

"When it first came on the market, I installed TifGrand Bermuda in my front yard because my grass was thinning out due to a north-facing orientation (shade). I have been very pleased with the results and NG Turf was extremely accommodating with their professional advice and service."

"In the past, I very seldom recommend bermudagrass for a home lawn. The main reason was poor performance in shaded areas close to the house, under trees, etc. Now with the development of TifGrand Bermuda, the world's first shade tolerant bermuda, I can use it with confidence."

"[Tifgrand] has the fine leaf quality of other popular turfgrasses but it maintains in shade and drought conditions and will cross multiple segments, including golf courses, sports fields and residential users."

"TifGrand will take market share from both the traditional bermuda market as well as the traditional shade-tolerant grass market, and even to some extent the southern boundary of the cool-season grass market. The TifGrand dynamics clearly should begin changes in the use and application of Bermuda in the market place."
