Bermudagrass is one of the most popular turf grasses in the United States. It is relatively drought and weed tolerant and can withstand higher levels of foot traffic than some other grasses.
Common Bermudagrass is most often used for grazing, hay, lawns, waterways, roadways, and so much more. It has good drought and wear resistance, spreads vigorously, and requires low maintenance. Common bermudagrass can survive periodic droughts and will remain green from late spring until first frost.
We sell bermudagrass as hulled or unhulled. The hull is the protective barrier around the seed and by removing it the seed can get water faster and typically grows faster.
