About TifTuf™

TifTuf™ outperforms all other Bermuda grasses in drought tolerance, keeping its fine texture and bright green color in conditions others couldn’t handle! This product is a 400 sq. ft. pallet of TifTuf™ sod.

TifTuf™ is the product of over 25 years of research by one of the leading turf breeders, the University of Georgia. TifTuf™ is superior to many Bermuda grasses for drought tolerance and uses 38% less water than Tifway 419. One of the biggest benefits to this variety is your lower monthly water bill. Not only will it handle drought with ease, but this exceptional variety is proven to withstand shade, wear and tear, and cold temperatures better than any other. Through all these stresses, TifTuf™ maintains its fine texture and beautiful bright green color. Its fine leaf blade with dense growth make this durable yet soft Bermuda ideal for a wide variety of applications from school playgrounds to sports fields.

Installation & Care Guide

PREPARATION

Prepare the soil by loosening 4 – 6” deep, removing any debris. Level the area with topsoil and smooth with a rake. Pre-irrigate the surface the evening before sod installation. It is essential the sod is not installed on a dry surface. Flag sprinkler heads to prevent covering the irrigation

Quick Tip: Gently touch the soil with your hands, if grains of soil stick to your finger pads, you are good to go!

SOD INSTALLATION

Lay sods just like bricks, in a stagger pattern. Line the seams next to each other, creating no gaps. Make sure the pieces are in contact with soil as much as possible.

Begin to water right away to start
establishment and prevent drying out.

POST CARE

Watering

Water is key when it comes to a new lawn.

Installation Day: The ground should feel soggy as you step on it; water, water, water!

First 10-14 Days: Water multiple times a day for short intervals. Depending on the weather, 2 to 6 times a day for 4 to 6 minutes at a time

Once Established: 1-2 inches a week. Irrigation is required as often as it takes to avoid stress. Stress means dried out, crunchy or wilted turf. Watering is a site-specific need and varies widely.

Mowing

At the 14-day mark, your lawn should be rooted and ready for the first mow. Be sure to check by pulling gently on the sod; do not mow if it comes up.

Preventative Maintenance

Fungicide

A contact/systemic fungicide application should occur within 24-48 hours after installation. This will help avoid install stress. After first application, a follow up application is recommended according to product
labels.

Herbicide

Wait a minimum of 14 days after installation before applying any herbicide to any turf. Assuming you are supplying your new lawn with enough water then your grass should be rooted down 2 weeks post install.

Fertilizer

Wait 30 days to fertilize your yard, you are then able to apply a dry granular fertilizer according to the label instructions.

At just over a month old your new grass is still establishing its root system. To expedite the rooting process, apply a dry granular fertilizer, we recommend Scotts® Southern Turf Builder granular fertilizer at rates recommended on the instructions on the bag. With more roots comes better moisture and nutrient transfer throughout the plant and an overall healthier stand of grass. Establishing a new lawn is a slow process, so be patient.
