At Rosemount Turf, we love TifTuf Bermuda but we thought we’d let you all know why! We have put together some of the reasons but, if you’d like to know more, give us a call on (07) 5448 6398 and we’d be more than happy to discuss further.

What is TifTuf?

TifTuf, otherwise known as TifTuf Bermuda or TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda, is a lawn variety that is pretty incredible. It is the result of over 25 years of research and development at the University of Georgia, which is on the leading turf grass breeders across the world. TifTuf was chosen out of almost 30,000 Bermuda varieties – that’s a pretty impressive resume! 

Why choose TifTuf Bermuda?

There are a huge range of reasons to decide on TifTuf as your turf choice, and we’ve included a few below.

Drought tolerant

TifTuf Bermuda turf requires around 38% less water than other grass varieties and does not go dormant during drought periods. If put under drought stress, TifTuf retains its quality and is fast to recover once the stress is over.

Colour

Another benefit is that TifTuf retains its colour during a range of seasons. Although it does go into a partial dormant state during winter (as it is a warmer-season variety), TifTuf still retains a lot more colour than other options. Additionally, once spring comes around, it gets greener much faster than other varieties!

Shade & wear tolerant

Due to Tiftuf growing very densely, it is suited to high wear scenarios such as backyards and sports fields. It is also shade tolerant due to its fine blade structure, making it soft to walk on too.

Sustainable

A great aspect of TifTuf is its sustainability – due to it requiring less water than other grass varieties, it is a much more environmentally friendly choice across many applications.

Versatile

Because TifTuf has a very fine leaf blade grows in a dense fashion, this allows it to be used in a variety of circumstances. Common applications include backyards, golf courses and sports fields.

Disease, Weed & Pest Tolerant

Finally, TifTuf is strongly resistant to many types of common pests and weeds. This offers a superiority compared to other lawn types, as many grass varieties lack this component. Another benefit is that you can focus more on other things, such as mowing and watering, instead of extensive weed and pest maintenance.

Other benefits

There are plenty of other benefits of TifTuf lawn including:

  • Creates higher levels of gibberellic acid than any other Bermuda varieties, which results in better photosynthesis stimulation.
  • Selected from a large gene-pool based on a specific set of traits, ensuring genetic purity
  • Needs 50% less sunlight than many other Bermuda varieties (due to higher gibberellic acid levels)
  • Extensive fibrous roots

As you can see, TifTuf Bermuda lawn is a great choice when it comes to turf for your backyard or other outdoor space. If you are thinking that TifTuf is suited to your needs, give Rosemount Turf a call on (07) 5448 6398 and we can assist further.
