What regions of the United States does Tahoma 31 Bermuda grass thrive?

Tahoma 31 Bermuda grass is particularly suited to the northern regions of the United States, such as the Transition Zone, which covers parts of Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi in the south to North Dakota and Iowa in the north. It has also been used successfully in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and Virginia. The grass can survive cold weather temperatures down to -15°F (-26°C) once established. Tahoma 31 Bermuda’s wide range of hardiness makes it a popular choice for residential lawns across much of America.

Why should homeowners user Tahoma 31 Bermuda grass instead of Tall Fescue?

Tahoma 31 Bermuda stands out from tall fescue in a number of ways. It boasts a finer blade texture than tall fescue, giving it a softer feel that’s more comfortable to walk on. Additionally, its quicker germination time means less wait time before you can enjoy your lawn while tall fescue takes longer to establish itself. The denser nature of Tahoma 31 also makes it more resilient against weed infestation than other grasses, as weeds may find it tough to break through the thick mats of robust blades. Finally, Tahoma 31 requires less fertilization and mowing than taller fescue varieties due to its dense growth pattern and lower growth habits.
