Requirements, Irrigation & Characteristics

Light Requirements:

TifGrand Bermuda only requires 4-5 hours of sun.


Though drought tolerant, to maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Tifgrand needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.

  • Sun Requirement : 4 – 5 hours  Excellent
  • Wear Resistance : Excellent
  • Injury Recovery : Excellent
  • Winter Color : Dormant
