Bermudagrass is considered by some to be the most widely distributed flowering plant on earth.

Its rapid vegetative growth habit allows it to quickly colonize nutrient-rich areas. While it does not have as good wear tolerance as zoysiagrass, bermudagrass recuperates very rapidly, thus it is the grass of choice for golf courses and athletic fields. Because of the need for a quality reel mower, and frequent applications of pesticides, bermudagrass is not a good choice for home lawns.

Bermudagrass is widely adapted to sunny areas. It is tolerant of brackish water and salt spray. Bermudagrass in south Florida has several damaging pest problems, including the sting nematode, mole crickets, and weeds. Because it has a relatively open habit of growth, and is frequently damaged by athletic activity, weeds, particularly goosegrass, germinate in the spring and summer and invade worn areas. Among many cultivars available, most superintendents and sports field managers prefer only one, ‘Tifway’ or 419 bermudagrass, for fairways and sports turf, while greens are planted to Tifdwarf and several newer “ultradwarfs.”
