Available Now. TifGrand® Bermuda, a product of world renowned UGA turfgrass breeder Dr. Wayne Hanna, is the first sterile triploid shade tolerant Bermuda. It has superior insect and disease resistance, and fewer seedheads than other varieties. TifGrand® is darker green than Tifway or TifSport, and will only be sold as certified Bermuda. TifGrand® was evaluated for nine years on golf courses and in research studies before its release in Summer 2010. TifGrand® is grown year-round at NG turf and can be installed as dormant sod during the winter months.
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.
Recommended mowing height is 1/2 to 1 1/2 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 is 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."
