ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 is a beautiful green, lush, and soft bermudagrass that requires low watering, low mowing, and low maintenance, which can be enjoyed by families, dogs, and sports enthusiasts.
ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 bermudagrass is a “game changer” for saving water in Colorado. Tahoma 31 requires 60% less water than Kentucky bluegrass and only requires watering every 3-4 days. In drought conditions, Tahoma 31 can survive up to 2-3 months without water and will green up when the water returns.
Typically, Colorado only has cold-season grasses. However with Tahoma 31, the benefits of a warm-season grass are now available.
These include lower water bills, reduced dog spots, lower air pollution due to reduced mowing, and curb appeal to increase home prices.
ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 bermudagrass is ideal for home lawns, sports fields, golf courses, and xeriscape environments.
ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 is a lush, soft, and green grass that is enjoyable to walk and play on.
Early testing also shows how the thick, grass canopy of Tahoma 31 bermudagrass helps against dog spots and dog urine and has a quick recovery in high-traffic environments.
ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 bermudagrass is the best grass for dogs.
Not only does Tahoma 31 only require watering every 3-4 days, ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 can also go 3-4 weeks without mowing.
Enjoy a lawn that is green and healthy that requires lower water, lower mowing, and lower maintenance.
ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 was developed by top turfgrass researchers at Oklahoma State University.
As a part of the research, Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass was tested in 36 locations across the country over multiple years in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP).
As a result of the program, Tahoma 31 ranked #1 in six major categories when compared against other leading bermudagrasses.
After rigorous testing against its competitors, the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) ranked ScienTurfic Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass #1 in low water use, turf quality, early spring green-up, shade tolerance, traffic tolerance, and can tolerate Colorado's harsh, cold winters.
Comparing evapotranspiration rates, Tahoma 31 fared best while TifTuf used the most water. Overall, Tahoma 31 used 18% less water than TifTuf.
Turf quality ratings in NTEP tests at 17 locations over 5 years show Tahoma 31’s exceptional turf quality among bermudagrasses.
By the end of the NTEP study, Tahoma 31 was rated by far with the greatest winter survivability in the three year study period, 2014 - 2017.
In NTEP tests, Tahoma 31 ranked at the top spot for early spring green-up among all vegetative bermudagrass cultivars tested in 16 states.
In the opinion of the researchers, Tahoma 31 is a great choice (among bermudagrasses) for partial shaded locations in the transition zone of the US.
Turfgrass quality under traffic in NTEP National Bermudagrass Test. Tahoma 31 exhibits excellent traffic tolerance compared to all other bermudagrass cultivars tested.
Using less than 15” of water annually, Tahoma 31 bermudagrass is the perfect complement for low water xeriscape solutions, particularly in cities than require low water, xeric plants.
Unlike artificial turf that is expensive and bad for the environment, Tahoma 31 is a “live” plant with better benefits and lower cost.
More than 50 golf courses, football fields, and soccer complexes nationwide use Tahoma 31.
California turfgrass professionals were so impressed, they replaced all of the turfgrass in the Los Angeles Coliseum with Tahoma 31 in 2022 after testing it on the University of Southern California practice field.
Churchill Downs also trust their multi-million dollar racehorses with Tahoma 31. Its soft, durable texture with rapid recovery is perfect for high-traffic areas, golf events, and even horse races.
