About Bermuda Grass
Bermuda grass is a medium- to fine-textured warm season turf-grass that spreads by rhizomes and stolons.
It has excellent heat, drought, and salt tolerance.
Bermuda grass is the most widely used species on athletic fields and golf course fairways/tee boxes due to its high wear tolerance and rapid recovery.
The color of this grass is usually dark green and spreads by rhizomes and stolons. This grass has the ability to grow in extreme climate conditions because of its extensive root system. It has a good tolerance capacity against insects and diseases.
