Hello nature lover.....!

Bermudagrass or Couchgrass (cynodon sp.), also called wiregrass, is the primary turf grass for much of the temperate and tropical areas of the world. Originating in Africa and India, this grass has the ability to withstand extremes in climatic and growing conditions around the world. "Common" Bermudagrass seed has been used for many years as a preferred turf surface for uses as diverse as professional sports fields, pastures, parks and home lawns.

Common Bermuda Grass Lawn

Common Bermuda Grass Seed is used for pasture, hay production, erosion control, lawns, roadsides, and many other uses. It is adapted for a wide range of soil types from sandy to clay soils. This bermuda grass is best adapted to the lower 1/3 of the US on well drained sites. It is very drought tolerant but still can stand flooding for short periods.

Common Bermuda grass seed is the original field selected variety from which the improved bermuda grass seeded varieties originated. It makes a coarse general purpose lawn and is still planted for lawn use throughout warm season areas. Common Bermuda Grass is also the least expensive grass variety you can plant from seed. Planting from seed is the most cost effective way to plant Bermuda grass.

Sahara bermuda grass seed is one of the more popular basic improved common bermuda grass seed varieties.

Types of Bermuda Grass Seed

HULLED & UN-HULLED SEED - Common Bermuda Grass seed is sold as both hulled and un-hulled seeds. Hulled seeds have the seed husk removed and germinate faster while un-hulled still have a natural seed husk that generally delays germination. This delay is natures way of waiting for more ideal conditions and ensuring a species survival. Under good growing conditions hulled seed will create a faster established pasture or lawn. Coated seed have a special chemical coating applied that helps in germination and reduces loss to birds. Read more about bermuda grass seeds below.

  • Hulled seed: Are seeds that have part of the protect seed coat mechanically removed so as to speed up germination percentages. This makes it more likely for the seed to all germinate at near the same time. More hulled seed are planted than any other kind, because people generally want fast germination which is best achieved with hulled seed.
  • Un-Hulled seed: Un-hulled seed still have the seed coats attached. Some seed may germinate early and others will lie dormant until conditions are more favorable for germination - even months later.

  • Coated seed: Coated seed have been coated with a coating material (clay based) and a fungicide to increase successful germination by providing control of seed and soil borne pathogens. One of the more popular is Pennington's Penkoted seed.
  • Raw seed: Raw seed are simply seeds that have not been coated. The advantage of raw seeds is you get more actual seed per lb. of weight. The disadvantage is usually that no fungicides are applied.
  • Hulled & Un-hulled Blend - This 50-50 Blend takes advantage of germination characteristics of both hulled and un-hulled seeds.

Often, grassing contractors will plant both hulled & un-hulled, so as to ensure a successful establishment of a planted area. Usually this is a 50-50 mixture of hulled and un-hulled seed.
