Australia’s newest turf grass variety - 25 years in the making

TifTuf Bermuda has been scientifically forged by one of the world's leading turf grass breeders to produce a great looking, superior all round lawn that requires minimal inputs. Hand selected from almost 30,000 varieties, TifTuf went through 25 years of testing before it came to the Australian market.

With a fine leaf blade and dense growth, TifTuf is ideal for a wide variety of applications, and perfect for Australian backyards. It shows a high drought tolerance and mild shade tolerance which is ideal for tropical and subtropical countries. With low water usage, high wear tolerance along with excellent winter colour, TifTuf is a sturdy and versatile turf grass.

It takes a lot to kill bermuda grass even through long periods of drought. Testing at the University of Georgia proved TifTuf uses 38% less water than other varieties after establishment.

Exclusive to Australia’s best turf farms with Lawn Solutions Australia membership, Jimboomba Turf is one of the few places you will find genuine and pure TifTuf turf in Brisbane.

The Australian research

The Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) Australia with a base right here in Queensland (Redlands) conducts world leading testing and research for developing innovative techniques and products to improve turfgrass and sports surfaces.

STRI recently conducted a trial evaluating the “Performance of bermuda grass cultivars under different shade, irrigation and wear treatments”.

TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda was a clear stand out performer in this trial. "In terms of shade tolerance, TifTuf was able to maintain the best performance among all cultivars under both 60% shade and full sun."

100% genetically pure

TifTuf has been forged by the best turf grass scientists and is recommended by Lawn Solutions Australia.

A product of the world’s leading turfgrass research facility, TifTuf bermuda has been hand selected from almost 30,000 different bermuda grass varieties. It boasts low water usage (giving it drought tolerance), shade tolerance and wear tolerance. TifTuf Bermuda turf has a good winter colour making it stand out from other bermuda grasses.

An initial 2 year deficit irrigation trial at the University of Georgia found the TifTuf hybrid bermuda maintained its quality lawn and green colour the longest. This trial was followed by a further drought stress, wear tolerance, and non stress trials at America’s leading universities. These tests concurred on TifTuf’s superior characteristics for both drought tolerance and shade tolerance.

Of all its characteristics, the most interesting for Dr Brian Schwartz at the University of Georgia was water usage. He found that TifTuf has incredible drought tolerance and uses 38% less water than other similar varieties after establishment. This makes TifTuf the perfect lawn for homes that go through dry spells or those that have high water charges they'd like to minimise.

If you're looking to plant bermuda grass in your backyard then the scientifically-forged TifTuf bermuda is the premium choice.

Lawn care for your TifTuf grass

With TifTuf, you can worry less about your lawn becoming dry or withered in the middle of South East Queensland’s summer heat. Your TifTuf bermuda lawn is designed to handle these conditions.

Whilst it is highly drought tolerant, you still need to do some regular watering to help your TifTuf bermuda grass grow: around 2.5mm per week in cooler weather or a minimum of 6mm in hot and dry weather. This is significantly less than the water other lawns require.

Regular mowing – even though it is a low maintenance lawn from a water and chemical input, it still needs regular mowing, at least once a week. The best height is between 1.5cm and 3.0cm, depending on your personal preference.

Use LSA Premium lawn fertiliser – the nitrogen in the fertiliser will make your lawn look amazing. The best time is spring or early summer. Don't over fertilise TifTuf, it doesn't need it, the more you fertilise it, the more frequent mowing you will need to do.

Use weed control – It’s an important part of lawn maintenance although with TifTuf you would expect to have fewer weeds than other turf varieties. However it is important to only use a weed control product suited for your TifTuf turf. Weed control should be conducted seasonally. All Purpose Weed Control is an easy hose on product that works well on TifTuf bermuda grass.

Insect Control - it's important to protect your investment from seasonal attacks by lawn grubs. We recommend an application of Acelepryn in early spring and autumn to keep the lawn grubs away.
