Tifway 2 Bermuda Sod (requires 8 hours full sun light daily)This grass is recommended for residential and commercial landscapes, golf courses, parks and athletic fields. Shade Tolerance: Has high light requirements – requires full sunlight most of the day. Bermuda should not be used in shady areas. Heat/Cold Tolerance:Has excellent heat tolerance. Not as cold tolerant as other turf type Bermudas Dormancy: Enters dormant stage in winter months. Stops growing when temperatures drop below 50F for sustained period; turns tannish color in the winter. Bermuda requires 65F ground temperature for significant growth. Slightly slower green-up in spring that other turf type Bermudas. Water Requirements: Will tolerate sustained periods of drought if well established. However, responds well to irrigation during dry conditions if higher quality turf grass desired. Should be kept moist during sustained periods of extreme cold. Wear Resistance Recovery: Very good wear resistance and will withstand heavy traffic. Very good injury recovery-spreads rapidly by rhizomes in warm season.
