Brief Description:
Tifgreen is a very dense, low-growing, fine-textured turf which produces lateral runners requiring concrete borders for containment.  Compared to other hybrid Bermudas (such as Santa Ana® and Tifway®), Tifgreen has a finer texture and a slower growth rate.  Because it produces thatch at a slower rate, Tifgreen is considered to be the more suitable hybrid Bermuda for residential use.  Tifgreen has a dark green color during its growing season; however, like all warm-season grasses, it becomes dormant in the winter.

Areas of Best Adaptability:
Tifgreen adapts well to all of Southern California's varying soils and climates.  Its most significant drawbacks are dormancy and thatching.

Winter Color:
Dormant.

Mowing Height:
¼" - ½" in height, mowed weekly.

Thatch:
Moderate to fast build-up, depending on mowing height.  Generally requires dethatching annually or bi-annually.
