TifTuf is a Hybrid Bermudagrass developed from 25 years of research by one of the world’s leading turf grass breeders.
TifTuf spreads by Rhizomes and stolons making it a self-repairing grass that can handle lots of wear and tear.
TifTuf is not as shade tolerant as Buffalograss however in trials it has shown itself to be better than other Bermudagrass varieties.
TifTuf is extremely drought tolerant and irrigation is rarely required once established even in summer. In trials conducted in Australia and the USA TifTuf is proving to be superior for drought tolerance over other Bermudagrass varieties such as Wintergreen and Legend.
You can water TifTuf at any time of day however best practice irrigation is conducted in early morning at sunrise or sunset to reduce evaporation.
The best time to lay TifTuf is Spring and autumn however it will root down in winter but is slower to establish. TifTuf is fine to lay in summer provided it is watered sufficiently during the establishment phase.
TifTuf will root down during winter however the shoot growth is minimal. If turfing in winter avoid any traffic on the new turf until spring if possible.
Turf should always be laid the day it is delivered to avoid it souring on the pallet. There are no exceptions to this.
Once the lawn is established it will require an application of Lawn Food fertilizer once a season to maintain healthy growth.
Fertilise at the start of each season to maintain a healthy lawn that resists weeds and recovers from wear.
Regular mowing with sharp blades helps the lawn to stay thick. Never remove more than 1/3 of the leaf length per mow.
Turf needs to be laid on a prepared surface to allow the roots to penetrate deep into the soil profile. This allows the lawn to survive in dry conditions and recover well from wear.
The Anco Turf calculator on their website is a handy tool for calculating how much turf you will need for different shaped areas.
Anco have large turf display plots so that you can view what you are buying. The staff will advise you of what is the best variety for your situation.
Orders over 50 square metres receive free lawn starter fertilizer with the order.
The Anco driver will call you the day before delivery to advise an approximate delivery time.
When ordering you can decide what day suits you for delivery. Allow a few days to make sure there is space on the truck for your preferred delivery day.
We recommend sandy loam soils for lawns as they drain well and don’t compact as much as clay or high organic content soils.
TifTuf makes an ideal lawn for those that need a lawn that will resist wear and recover well. It will reduce your gardening water bill significantly.
