Developed by turfgrass researchers at Oklahoma State University (known then as OCK 1131) and, through nationwide testing in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP), Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass demonstrated its resilience and excelled in key metrics compared to other premium Bermudagrasses.
Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass derives its name from the Native American word, Tahoma, which means “frozen water”. In multiple tests, Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass demonstrated its exceptional winter hardiness by testing up to 75% more cold-tolerant than other Bermudagrass varieties. With the additional characteristics of improved wear tolerance and drought resistance, Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass is ideal for sports turf, golf courses and high-quality lawns in the Mid-Atlantic and Transition Zones in the U.S.A.
If you've had a lawn in Georgia for any length of time, you know how hot our summers can get! Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass maintains its vibrant green color with much less water than competing varieties, which is important in today's climate and water use considerations.
High Turf Quality
Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass has a beautiful texture and deep green color. Whether you are mowing at an inch or down to 1/8th, Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass is sure to impress even the most seasoned gardener or competitive neighbor.
Early Spring Green Up
In the spring the air is warm and the birds are chirping. No one wants a dormant brown lawn on a nice Spring day! Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass was #1 for Spring green-up in National Turfgrass Evaluation Program trials - this means your lawn will be one of the first to green up.
Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass repairs itself rapidly after injury. Whether it’s your dog, a tire track, or your 5th grade athlete - this grass will quickly repair as though the damage was never there!
