TifGrand® Bermuda offers superior quality in full sun, along with moderate shade tolerance. Perfect for golf courses, it is darker green than other Bermuda varieties such as Tifway or TifTuf. TifGrand requires less nitrogen fertilizer to maintain its rich color and can be mowed below 0.5”, although it thrives best at 0.5” to 1”.

Maintenance Guide

Once established, follow general recommendations of 1″ of water from rain or irrigation per week, depending on soil conditions and climate. Moderately drought resistant, TifGrand goes dormant during stress and greens up after watering. TifGrand prefers well drained soils.

TifGrand establishes quickly and can be laid year round, even when dormant depending on climate. Test soil prior to installation and amend as needed, ideal pH 6.0 to 6.5. Install in areas of full sun to partial shade. Visit the resources page to view or download our soil preparation and installation guides.

Maintain at recommended mowing height of 0.5″ to 1.5″. Follow general mowing recommendations, keeping mower blades sharp and removing no more than 1/3 of grass height per mowing. Click to view the Bermuda Maintenance guide.

TifGrand generally requires 3 to 6 pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet annually. Test soil before fertilizing. Excess fertilizer may result in increased thatch and reduced vigor. Avoid high nitrogen “winterizing” fertilizers in fall. Click to view the Bermuda Maintenance guide.
