UGA turfgrass breeders and Southeastern sod farms want you to know that drought tolerance has a new name: TifTuf Bermudagrass Sod. Water-use issues, particularly surrounding irrigation, will continue to mount.
Water savings means a lot to you and your clients, so do aesthetics. TifTuf will pay for itself in water savings and it will increase the aesthetic appeal of all built properties: TifTuf stays greener longer in the autumn and greens up earlier in the spring than other warm-season lawns, it establishes quickly and easily from sod, it has increased wear and tear tolerances, and when established on good soils, it simply won’t need supplemental irrigation during drought.
Do you want to make an outstanding first impression at all times, even during a drought? The lawn of the property next door may be crispy brown in a drought, but TifTuf stays green.
Growers throughout the Southeast have plenty in stock. There will be sod farmers at The 21st Century Building Expo in September. Come talk to them.
