Bermudagrass makes for a nice home lawn because it can tolerate a very low mowing height, which is also a reason it is widely used on golf courses in the South. It spreads by both stolons and rhizomes, which helps it to form a thick, dense turf. It is usually found in the south, but may grow as far north as Kansas City. Its maintenance requirements (fertilizing, watering, mowing) are high. •Width: 1/8" wide •Tip/blade: sharp point •Color: deep green •Growth: forms a dense, close-cut, high-quality turf •Additional: most popular lawn grass in the central US.
