TifTuf is the new grass taking Australia by storm. This soft-leaf, drought-tolerant Bermuda grass has been on the market in Melbourne for about 12 months now, and is already proving it has what it takes to be the best Australian Bermuda ever.
So why is TifTuf so popular, and why does it deserve your attention? Here are the top six reasons why TifTuf could be the grass for you.
1. TifTuf uses less water.
All grass needs sunlight, fertiliser, healthy soil, and water to survive. But TifTuf doesn’t need nearly as much water as other grasses, even other couches on the Australian market. US studies have shown that Tif Tuf uses up to 38% less water than similar lawn varieties.
2. TifTuf maintains better winter colour than other couch grasses.
Bermuda grasses typically lose colour during the cooler months, often going almost straw yellow. TifTuf is proven to retain greener colour during these cooler months, reducing the need to sow or colour your lawn.
3. TifTuf handles traffic and wear.
With impressively high wear tolerance, TifTuf is the perfect grass for high-traffic conditions. From sports fields and tennis courts to busy family backyards, TifTuf will self-repair quickly no matter what you throw at it.
4. TifTuf doesn’t require much fertilising.
Most lawn varieties require regular fertilising, but not TifTuf! We recommend fertilising TifTuf only three times a year. This is enough to provide all the nutrients the grass needs and maintain a healthy level of growth.
5. TifTuf loves sunshine and warmth.
TifTuf loves full sunshine and thrives in the Melbourne heat.
6. TifTuf is soft underfoot.
TifTuf has a naturally soft leaf and a short leaf length, which makes it feel very soft underfoot. Ideal for walking barefoot!
In conclusion, if you are looking for a tough, drought-resistant, sunshine-loving grass that looks great and feels even better, TifTuf is a great choice.
