Bermuda Grass Seed For Putting Greens

Currently Princess 77 and Yukon are some of the latest improved varieties that would suffice on a home putting green, with seeds now available. Costs of these seed are higher than common bermuda ... but compared to sodding a similar hybrid variety for comparable quality, they are usually much cheaper to establish. You will find these varieties used for home greens where a perfect green quality is NOT required. While used for some home greens they are NOT green quality varieties and are not use for greens on most golf courses (For greens you need a hybrid quality GREEN variety.)

These improved seeds are generally in limited supply because this grass is a very fine type suitable for golf course use and even home putting green usage.  Princess 77 and Yukon seeds are fairly expensive (Often selling for 8-10 times the price of common) as they are more difficult to produce... and are currently only available in limited quantities with demand often exceeding supply. Riviera and Yukon generally sell out each spring due to limited production. Supplies of Princess are also short but lately have been available year round.

Bermuda Grass Plugs Sold By Seedland

Bermuda Plugs - Tifway 419

Tifway 419 Bermuda Grass Plugs are an improved variety that is vegetatively established. Used extensively on sodded Football and Baseball fields. Also used on many golf course greens in the south. The closest to this variety in a seeded Bermuda would be Princess 77 , Prima XD Blend, or Yukon. Of these three Yukon probably becomes the closest to looking the same, however all varieties planted side by side will exhibit certain differences in texture and color. The best option if trying to improve / increase the density of a hybrid Tif lawn is to overseed all areas of the lawn with the replacement variety to try to minimize any visual differences the eye may observe. Tifway 419 grass plugs tolerate more wear and more able to resist weed invasion. It is more resilient in winter months when the grass is dormant.

Bermuda Grass Hybrid Variety Grass Plugs & Sods

NOTE: Hybrid varieties do NOT produce seeds - To plant or replace these varieties you must obtain and use either Grass Plugs -- available from Seedland, sprigs or sod.

Contact a local landscape or sodding company as to availability of these varieties of sod in your area.

Tifgreen has a beautiful dark green color, and has a ground hugging growth making it ideal on golf courses, athletic fields used for tennis, softball, baseball, and in countries where lawn games such as croquet, cricket, lawn bowling badminton is popular because of the fine texture and density. It is a high maintenance grass requiring watering, fertilization and frequent mowing to retain the low even height it is popular and is probably the most used of the Bermuda varieties.  

Tifgreen II is an improvement over the Tifgreen version for better resistance to colder weather and nematode infestations. It develops as full a growth for the lush look needed for low mowing potential.

Tiflawn is an older version and was developed for lower growing ability, denseness, good texture, and like other Bermudas grows fast and repairs quickly and this makes it an excellent choice for athletic fields, lawns with high traffic areas and parks. And like the majority of the Bermuda grasses has a good tolerance to drought.

Tifway is similar to Tifdwarf in the intensity of color and with the medium texture of most the Bermudas with its strong strength being its resistance to pests such as the Bermuda mite.

TIFWAY II is the next improvement over Tifway and is said to have a better resistance to nematode infestation and can stand the cooler temperatures. It is not as durable as Tiflawn and like many of the improved Bermudas takes a good maintenance program to keep the lawn in a-one shape.

FloraTex ™ is one of the Bermudas developed in Texas and Florida and is an improvement over the common varieties and has a medium texture that is not as fine as the Tif varieties and requires less fertilizer and has better drought resistance. This variety is vegetatively planted and used in finer lawns.

There are many, many more of both sodded (vegetative) and seeded varieties available to the consumer to plant. Some are actual varieties that came out of public (university) or private breeding programs. Some are simply selections that a particular sod company has decided to name and sell as it's "own" private label named variety.
