Wouldn't you love having a dense lawn that stays green despite seasonal changes? BIMINI® Bermudagrass offers exactly that. With its exceptional heat, drought, and cold tolerance, this grass holds its vivid color longer than other bermuda and warm-season grass varieties overall. Plus, it greens up early in the spring, giving your yard a head start on the growing season. BIMINI® ensures your lawn remains lush and eye-catching all year round.

BIMINI® Bermuda and Its Superior Heat and Cold Tolerance

Bermudagrass is a warm-season variety that thrives in warm climates and is known for its exceptional heat and drought tolerance. This resilience is due to its extensive, deep root system, which also enables it to handle heavy foot traffic. Characterized by its fast spread and upright leaf growth, bermudagrass also boasts quick injury recovery, making it an ideal option for high-traffic sports fields and recreational parks.

BIMINI® is an improved bermudagrass variety that not only retains the key strengths of bermudagrass but also introduces superior features. Bermudagrass thrives and is extensively used in the warm, humid Florida climate and similar regions. However, the fine-textured BIMINI® Bermudagrass with a beautiful dark green color goes further by delivering increased shade and cold tolerance. This feature extends the viability of bermudagrass from the southern regions to the transition zones, allowing it to endure lower temperatures and perform exceptionally well in cooler climates.

America's Most Resilient Sportsgrass

Various studies have underscored BIMINI®'s exceptional qualities. According to a study by Oklahoma State University, it ranked highest in durability and is the most traffic-tolerant grass variety. Additionally, the University of Florida recognized it for having the highest drought tolerance and maintaining superior turf quality with minimal water among tested varieties. BIMINI® is also the first to green up in spring after dormancy, further enhancing its desirability as a premier turfgrass variety. These findings cement BIMINI®'s reputation as America's most resilient grass and one of the most desirable bermuda varieties.

Initially cultivated for commercial applications, golf courses, and sports fields, BIMINI® Bermudagrass has quickly made its way to residential lawns. Homeowners are specifically drawn to its dense turf and rapidly spreading growth habit, which translates to a lush, resilient lawn. Find BIMINI® Bermuda for sale through our network of trusted growers.


Cultivating BIMINI® Bermuda for a Healthy Lawn All Year

Even with its exceptional qualities, proper lawn maintenance remains important for your BIMINI® bermudagrass to ensure its resilience to environmental stresses, pests, and fungal diseases. Even the most durable turfs can suffer from damage with prolonged neglect. Adequate watering, proper mowing, and regular fertilization are essential to keep your lawn healthy and green.

BIMINI® bermudagrass thrives in full sun, requiring at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily. It can tolerate mowing heights between 0.5 to 2 inches, which are typically associated with golf course fairways and rough. For optimal growth, warm-season grasses like BIMINI® need about 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week, including rainfall and irrigation. This is about 20% less than what cool-season grasses require. It's best to water deeply but less frequently to encourage deeper and denser root growth,

In frost-free climates such as Florida, your warm-season grass may not go fully dormant. BIMINI® bermudagrass, in particular, retains its beautiful deep green color longer than other species as temperatures drop in late fall and greens up earlier in the spring.


You can find BIMINI® bermudagrass in some of the most prominent high-traffic sporting fields, including the fairways and rough at the prestigious 18-hole championship golf course at Panther National and the baseball field at Stetson University. Now, you can bring this professional-quality turf right to your lawn.

Transform your outdoor space with BIMINI® bermudagrass and enjoy a lush, resilient lawn that stands out for its beauty and durability.
