Sun or Shade? Both. 🌤

Thriving in full sun, TifTuf also has some shade tolerance

As a Bermudagrass, TifTuf naturally thrives in full-on, all-day long, baking hot sun. However, it offers some shade tolerance, as long as it gets at least 5 to 6 hours of full sun (comparable to TifGrand). We have articles to help you determine if your yard is too shady for grass and we offer tips on how to make it a little more sunny, if necessary.

TifTuf is superior to all other lawns for drought tolerance

A lawn that will pay for itself in reduced water bills

TifTuf maintains turf quality under drought stress; it does not go drought-dormant like other warm season lawns. Rather, it holds acceptable green color, even during the tough droughts we endure here in the Deep South.

TifTuf Bermuda is a Warm-Season Grass

The term "warm season" means it's green during the warm growing season; going dormant after frost. Even though it's dormant during winter, it can still be walked and played on.

Available as sod, TifTuf sod can be installed all year long, even during the winter when it's dormant. As a hybrid Bermudagrass, TifTuf is not available to grow from seed.
