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.
[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.
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.

We love using North Georgia Turf at HighGrove Partners. The quality of their Bermuda product is exceptional. They have a tremendous team that always provides great customer service; whether it is with turf questions, scheduling, or looking up old invoices. We really enjoy having them as a vendor partner and would recommend them to anyone.
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.
