Houston’s Best Bermuda Grass Sod
Call us at 281-431-7441 for the best Bermuda grass sod sold in Houston! Bermuda grass is ideally suited for athletic fields, apartment complexes, and other high traffic applications because it grows back quickly and can quickly repair gouges and divots. We sell two varieties of Bermuda grass — Texturf 10 and Tifway 419.
Texturf 10 Bermuda grass is a varietal selection of Common Bermuda grass that was developed and released by Texas A & M University. This is a course bladed Bermuda grass; however, it is a much more lush grass than Common Bermuda grass and it does not produce a seed head like Common Bermuda grass does. Although Texturf 10 is not at fine bladed as Common Bermuda grass, it’s much finer than any of the St. Augustine grass varieties.
Like other Bermuda grasses, Texturf 10 works very well for athletic fields and other high traffic areas because it grows quickly and can repair damage. Texturf 10 will only grow in full sun.
This Bermuda grass will require 3 to 4 applications of a 3-1-2 ratio fertilizer with a slow release nitrogen source. Ideal mowing height is 1 to 2 inches with a rotary mower or a reel type mower. Note that this grass does require at least one more fertilizer application per year than the St. Augustine and the mowing height is approximately 1 inch shorter than the St. Augustine turfgrass.
Insect problems occur during the fall season and consist primarily of army worms and grub worms. A variety of liquid and granular insecticides are available to control these pests. Make an application to the entire lawn and water thoroughly to eliminate the problem. Watering requirements for Texturf 10 Bermuda grass are similar to the St. Augustine turf grass requirements.
Please check our video for more information about Texture 10 Bermuda grass.
Tifway 419 is a fine bladed, semi-dwarf Bermuda grass. It was originally developed for golf course fairways and tee boxes, but it’s also an excellent sports field grass because of its ability to recover quickly from wear. Like Texturf 10, Tifway 419 Bermuda grass must be grown in FULL SUN. It may also be used in home lawns in places where full sun is available all day.
Because Tifway 419 was developed for use on golf courses, the ideal mowing height for this turfgrass is one inch, either with a rotary or reel type mower. Note that this grass is ideally mowed shorter than all of the St. Augustine varieties AND the Texturf 10. Other than the mowing height, the fertilization and watering instructions are similar to the Texturf 10.

Picking the right grass variety for your project can be confusing and we’re here to help. Call us at 281-431-7441 or use our contact form for advice on getting the right grass for your situation.
Please remember though that Bermuda grass requires full sun all day. That means that it won’t do well in areas that are shaded by walls, fences, buildings and trees. We have some varieties of St. Augustine grass and Zoysia grass that do well in partially shaded areas. Call us to answer any questions.
