Why Hybrid?

  • Withstand heavy traffic
  • Excellent wear recovery
  • Finer texture
  • Favorable color
  • More weed and disease resistant

Hybrid Bermuda improves upon Common Bermuda's qualities including handling extended periods of high temperatures and mild winters, is drought resistant, and can grow in many soil conditions.      

The following are the typical Hybrid Bermudagrass varieties we work with, along with their major characteristics.

TifSport & Tifway 419

  • dark green color
  • very durable
  • low growing habit
  • fine texture

TifSport

  • genetically pure (newer, not mutated over time like Tifway 419)
  • no seed heads

TexTurf 10

  • slightly taller growing habit
  • medium texture

Which Type?

When working on sports fields, it's important to match the grass type to the expected maintenance behaviors involved for a particular field or facility. We work to ensure the right grass variety is chosen so it will perform well based on the conditions affecting the playing surface. One common example is choosing TexTurf 10 over 419 or TifSport because the field in question will not be mowed three times per week.
