Patriot Bermuda Grass  

  Patriot Bermuda is an excellent grass for any yard. It is a dense, high performance turfgrass. Patriot offers excellent cold hardiness compared to other hybrid Bermuda grasses with overall high turf quality. Patriot is well suited for areas requiring high quality turf such as: golf course tees and fairways athletic fields home landscapes commercial landscapes parks and playgrounds. Its appearance and quality is is on par with the best commercial varieties such as Tifway 419, Tifsport, and Tifgreen. However; Patriot ranks higher in areas of :

- Extremely vigorous growth
- Wear tolerance
- Rapid divot recovery
- Early spring greenup
- Freeze tolerance


Patriot is rated one of the most cold hardy on the market. It is disease resistant and wear tolerant. Patriot has an extremely rapid rate of establishment, and, if done properly, you can go from planting to playing in far less than 90 days. Patriot is clearly the bermuda grass of the future.

Patriot is highly suited for areas requiring high quality turf, including fairways, tee boxes, playgrounds, athletic fields and residential lawns. Patriot performs best when maintained at 0.38 to 1.5 inches. Mowing frequency is dictated by mowing height.


Patriot Bermuda Maintenance & Calendar

This calendar of suggested management practices is designed as a guideline to assist lawn care professionals and homeowners in the maintenance of a Bermuda lawn. Location, terrain, soil type and condition, age of the lawn, previous lawn care, and other factors affect turf performance. For these reasons, the following management practices can be adjusted to suit your particular home lawn conditions.


Mow the lawn when it first turns green in the spring with a reel mower set at 3/4 to 1 inch or a rotary mower set as low as possible without scalping. Mow before grass gets taller than 1 1/2 to 2 inches. Then practice grasscycling. Grasscycling is simply leaving grass clippings on your lawn. Glass clippings decompose quickly and can provide up to 25 percent of the lawn's fertilizer needs. If prolonged rain or other factors prevent frequent mowing and clippings are too plentiful to leave on the lawn, they can be collected and used as mulch.



Spring - When grass begins to green up in spring apply a turf-grade high-nitrogen fertilizer, such as 20-4-10, preferrably containing a weed preventer such as Barricade. Broadcast fertilizer using a rotary-typespreader following spreading rates recommended on bag.

Summer - In mid-summer apply a complete nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (N-P-K) turf-grade fertilizer such as 28-4-6 or similar. Broadcast fertilizer using a rotary-typespreader following spreading rates recommended on bag.

Fall - In early to mid fall apply a turf-grade Fall Feed/Winterizer, such as 5-5-20, preferably containing a weed preventer such as Barricade. Broadcast fertilizer using a rotary-typespreader following spreading rates recommended on bag.



To maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Bermudagrass needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A dark bluish gray color, footprinting, and wilted, folded, or curled leaves indicate that it is time to water. Proper irrigation may reduce pest problems and environmental in the summer. NOTE: Always water during the early to late morning hours and never at night. Watering at night will often lead to fungal development.


Weed Control

Apply a granular preemergence herbicide such as Team 2G in early to mid February to prevent the emergence of spring weeds such as crabgrass. Late spring, summer and applications of preemergence herbicides are also recommended, and as stated above can be applied in combination with a fertilzer containing a weed preventer.

To kill weeds that have emerged postemergence herbicides can be applied. Apply postemergence herbicides only when weeds are present and make sure to wait until three weeks after the lawn is green. Be sure the product is labeled for use on Bermudagrass and always be careful to follow mixing and applications instructions on product label. Spot treating is recommended.


Insect Control
We don't see too many problems with insects on Bermudagrass. Check for white grubs and control them if necessary.


Thatch Removal

If thatch is present and more than 1/2-inch thick, use a dethatcher to remove thatch in May.
