Golf course fairways and tees - manicured home lawns - well maintained sports turf and parks. Princess is the closest to "green quality" bermuda in a SEEDED variety available. It is NOT as high quality as most hybrids used on professional golf courses, but is similar in quality to Tif-419. Comparisons of Princess with hybrid & seeded varieties can be found at www.ntep.org -  We do NOT recommend Princess for green use except where the speed & level of play is not critical to equaling professional standards. Princess 77 is suitable for home putting greens.

Adaptation of Princess 77 Bermuda

Used in Climatic Zones: 7-8-9-10-11-12*
(*May not be adaptable to all areas within each climatic zone)

Seeding Rate

1-2 pounds of seed per 1,000 sq. ft. - Under professional application. Homeowners: 2-3 lbs. per / 1000 sq.ft. --- We recommend 2 lbs / 1000 if broadcast. Princess seed are smaller than most coated Bermudas, thus the lower recommended seeding rates.

When to Plant Bermuda Grass Seed

Soil temperatures must be constantly above 70?F  -- air temperatures would be 80° after all danger of freeze / frost past. Night temperatures are a good indicator of soil temperature. Plant when night air temperatures reach a consistent 65 to 70°. Plant from spring to late summer for best results. Read more tips and recommendations on planting Bermudagrass a warm season grass.

Where to Plant

In full sun on well drained soil. Proper drainage is essential for successful establishment and the development of mature healthy turf.

Planting Method

For best results, take a soil sample and follow fertility recommendations prior to planting. Do not cover the seed with too much soil - no more than 1/4" (.6cm) covering over the seed is recommended. Water: Soil moisture around the seed must be maintained for about 1-2 weeks. Days to Germinate: Under ideal conditions, germination may begin within 7 days. Allow 4-18 days for completion. Plant when soil temperatures are consistently above 65 degrees.

Germination & Establishment

Germination will begin within 7 days under ideal conditions. Allow 14-21 days for normal full germination to occur. Under ideal conditions, full coverage may be attained between 4-6 weeks with proper management. If planting is occurring late or early in the season, allow longer for establishment.  Generally expect full coverage in 8-12 weeks.

After seeding, soil moisture in the root zone must be maintained for about 1 to 2 weeks, germination may begin within 7 to 10 days. After the new turf is established, less frequent, deep watering is desirable. Recommended mowing height is 3/16 to 1 inch (5 to 25 mm) with no more than 1/3 of the leaf blade removed per mowing -- see detailed mowing information below

Fertilize with 1/2 to 1 lb/1,000 sq ft actual N (0.25 to 0.5 kg /100 sq m) per month of growing season for optimum performance, fertilization may be reduced by 1/2 if clippings are returned. This is a dense hybrid – verticut at least once per growing season during periods of active growth.

Winter overseeding may be completed for year round green color, but is generally not recommended on turf less than 6 months old as the new turf may be damaged by the verticutting and scalping procedures.

Mowing Heights Are Very flexible - Possible to mow from 3/16" to 3"

  • Manageable at 3/16 inch (5mm)... maintains good leaf density at mowing heights under 1.25" when mowed with reel mowers.
  • Can be mowed at higher heights for general purpose home lawns (1.25 up to 3 inches) - Rotary mowers are fine for heights above 1.25 inches. - Most home / commercial lawns are best maintained at 1.5 to 2.5 inches for a good overall look. Rotary mowers can usually be used at heights above 1.5 inches.

The maintenance requirements for your grass will be determined by the height at which you wish to keep it mowed. Lower mowing heights may require verticutting due to the dense turf growth.

LOW MOWING HEIGHTS (Under 1")

Recommended High Input Maintenance Schedule:Pricess 77 Bermuda Grass - Mowed Higher height
1/2 to 3/4 mowing height.
3/4 to 1 lb. N/1000 sq.ft. / per growing month.
Irrigation to prevent visual drought stress.
Mowing frequency of 3-5 times per week.

HIGHER MOWING HEIGHTS 1.5 to 2.5 inches - Home Lawns

Recommended Normal Lawn Inputs - Maintenance Schedule:
1.5" to 3" - mowing height.
1/2 to 3/4. N/1000 sq.ft. / per growing month.
Irrigation to prevent visual drought stress.

Mowing frequency of generally every 5 to 7 days for use in home lawns. The higher the mowing height, the less mowing required. In order to maintain a good leaf density and color you need to mow whenever the grass has grown 1/3 longer than the your desired maintenance height. For instance if your ideal maintenance height is 3/4 inch, you need to mow when the grass grows to 1". If the your ideal maintenance height is 1.5 inches, you need to mow when it reaches 2 inches in height.
