Known for its drought tolerance and ability to maintain quality under drought stress, the new turf variety, TifTuf is setting a new standard for drought tolerant lawns and it’s now here in Australia. Once established, Tiftuf requires little to no irrigation even during a moderate drought or dry spell.
TifTuf™ Bermuda grass grown and supplied by Daleys Turf is the product of almost 25 years of research and development from one of the world’s leading turf breeders, the University of Georgia. TifTuf™ has been hand selected out of almost 30,000 different Bermuda varieties for displaying superior qualities in drought tolerance, shade tolerance (4-5 hours directly sunlight required daily), wear tolerance and winter colour while, at the same time, maintaining excellent turf quality.
TifTuf™ has a very fine leaf blade with dense growth, making it ideal for a wide variety of applications. Its density enables it to handle high wear situations such as school playgrounds, backyards and sports fields. The fine blade ensures shade tolerance and a very soft leaf to walk and play on. TifTuf™ Bermuda grass has been scientifically engineered to produce a great looking year round lawn with superior quality and minimal maintenance required.

And, Tiftuf will pay for itself in reduced water bills. For this, and other reasons, we expect Tiftuf to become extremely popular in both the residential and commercial landscapes, as well as in other high traffic areas such as daycare centres, schools, sporting fields and parks. Being able to withstand wear and tear and traffic better than other types of Bermuda grasses, Tiftuf is a great choice for high impact activities such as golf, baseball, soccer and football. Because it is rapid growing, if it is managed correctly, recovery is typically faster than for other warm season grasses suffering the same amount of wear and tear.
Tiftuf Bermuda turf can be installed all year round – really – anytime is a good time to install Tiftuf turf.
