About Tifway Bermuda grass

If you are in the market for a drought tolerant, hardy Bermuda grass sod, then Tifway Bermuda may be the right choice for you. Tifway Bermuda grass, also known as Tifway 419 Bermuda, was developed by the University of Georgia like many other hybrid Bermuda grasses. Its dense, rapidly spreading growth habit means quick recovery from injury, making it one of the most durable Hybrid Bermudas.

Characteristics of Tifway Bermuda grass

Tifway 419 tolerates close mowing and is highly disease resistant. Bermuda is used on fairways, roughs, sports fields, and commercial and residential lawns. Tifway performs at its best in full sun with a mowing height of 1/2“-3/4”. It grows well in nearly all soil types and resistant to drought. It spreads both above ground (stolons) and below ground (rhizomes) which makes it very aggressive and able to wear well and compete successfully with most weed species. The biggest negatives to bermuda grass are that it tends to creep into the flower beds, and it does not tolerate shade very well. Do not select bermuda grass for lawns that are shady. Tifway is recognized as having a dark green color and leaves that are fine-medium textured. Tifway hybrid bermuda grass is course with a medium to low growth habit. This variety is a vigorous grower and thus establishes quickly at planting.
