TifTuf Bermuda

TifTuf Bermuda Grass has been scientifically forged to produce a great looking, all round instant lawn with superior qualities, whilst requiring minimal inputs.

Developed by the best turf-grass scientists,
you can only expect the best!

TifTuf Bermuda grass is the product of almost 25-years of research and development from one of the world’s leading turf-grass breeders, the University of Georgia. It has been hand selected out of almost 30,000 different Bermuda grass varieties, showing superior qualities as a drought tolerant grass, shade tolerant grass and wear tolerant grass. It also proved to keep winter colour whilst at the same time maintaining excellent turf quality.

TifTuf was bred as one of nearly 28,000 experimental Bermuda grass genotypes. In 1999, just 90 of these genotypes were hand selected based on their performance and were planted in an area that had no access to rainfall and were provided poor irrigation. Evaluations took place right through 2001. These evaluations showed that under drought stress, the TifTuf Bermuda grass maintained its quality and colour the longest.

Benefits of TifTuf Bermuda

Shade Tolerant

TifTuf Bermuda performs in full sun conditions as well as up to 50% of the day in shade.

Rapid Self-Repairer

TifTuf is a fast growing lawn that has the ability to repair itself very quickly, making it ideal for high traffic areas such as family backyards and sports fields.

Drought Tolerance

TifTuf Bermuda requires 38% less water than other lawn varieties and is a proven performer in drought conditions. It is the first and only turf grass to receive the Smart Approved WaterMark for drought tolerance.

Wear Tolerant

TifTuf has an extremely dense growth meaning it can handle high wear situations like family backyards and is even used on footie ovals around Australia!

Year round colour

Couch has a bad reputation for browning off during winter but the new hybrid-couch, TifTuf Bermuda, there's a new normal! It has fantastic winter green colour and exceptional spring green up qualities for a lush green lawn, all year round.

Genetically Pure

As TifTuf was selected from a large gene pool based on certain traits, maintaining the genetic purity is crucial. The entire foundation material is bred from only plant and only select growers can propagate it. That's why we will guarantee your TifTuf Bermuda with a Certificate of Authenticity so you can be assured you are receiving the genuine lawn.

The first and only turf grass in the world to receive the
Smart Approved WaterMark

Creating a new benchmark for drought tolerance in turf grass in Australia, TifTuf Bermuda has been formally recognised for its level of water saving efficiency by Smart Approved WaterMark in SA, QLD, NSW, VIC & TAS (excluding NT & WA). 

Why buy TifTuf Bermuda Instant Lawn

Prior to TifTuf being released on the market it had been tested in 19 drought-stress trials, 2 sports field wear tolerance trials, utilising the Cady traffic simulator, and 4 irrigated, non-stress trials at The University of Georgia, The University of Florida, North Carolina State University, Oklahoma State University and Texas A&M University as part of the Federal Speciality Crop Research Initiative (SCRI) grant. TifTuf Bermuda Grass has now become the University research standard by which all drought tolerant grass or turf will be determined.

As the TifTuf Bermuda Grass was selected from a large gene pool based on certain traits, maintaining the genetic purity is crucial. To ensure this, the University of Georgia has bred all of its foundation material (thousands of acres) from a single plant!

Lawn Solutions Australia has maintained this attention to detail with its propagation and expansion in Australia following similar stringent conditions.

All TifTuf Bermuda lawn sold in Australia has been subject to rigorous AusGAP certification standards that incorporate international breeding and propagation protocols.

Looking after TifTuf Bermuda

Watering

TifTuf is an extremely drought tolerant grass – the first turf grass in the world to be given the Smart Approved WaterMark. Growth of TifTuf can be regulated by decreasing water inputs and therefore reducing maintenance needs. It’s common for people to water their lawn every day for 10 minutes for its whole life, however, this isn’t best practice. Once established, your lawn will benefit a lot more from long (e.g. 1 hour) deeper soaks less frequently (once or twice a week). This will encourage strong root development and a healthy, happy lawn that can better withstand seasonal changes such as drought and frost. 

Fertilising

TifTuf has a low nutrient requirement to thrive and be happy. We recommend to fertilise your TifTuf 3-4 times a year seasonally, ideally in September, December and March. TifTuf only requires 1/4 of the recommended rate of fertiliser compared to other varieties. A high quality, slow release granular fertiliser such as Lawn Solutions Premium Fertiliser is highly recommended for a slower and more constant dose of nutrients.

lawn mowing

Mowing

TifTuf Bermuda has a high growth rate which means it has a higher mowing requirement.
Every 4-7 days is recommended through its peak growing season with either a rotary or, for a cleaner cut, a cylinder mower. Regularly mowing your lawn will promote thick and even growth and promote your lawns overall health. Ensure that your mower blades are sharp and that you never mow more than 1/3 of the leaf off at one time.
