Vamont Bermuda

Vamont Bermuda was released by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station in 1980.  This Bermuda grass originated from the vegetative increase of a vigorous turf-type plant observed spreading on a golf course fairway near North Wilkesboro, NC.  It is medium textured with few, if any, seed stems.  The grass is medium green color, spreads vigorously, and forms a dense turf which has a good tolerance to traffic.  In sprigged plants, with proper irrigation and care, it will adequate cover for play in about 6 weeks.  Vamont is more winter hardy than Tifway or Tufcote.  It is a good choice for athletic fields, golf course fairways, and lawns.

Meyer Zoysia

Meyer Zoysia, also known as Z-52* or 'Amazoy'*, is an improved selection of Zoysia japonica released in 1951. 'Meyer' is the zoysiagrass often advertised as the "miracle" grass in newspapers and magazines and has long been the standard zoysiagrass in use. It has a deep green color, medium leaf texture, and spreads much faster than other varieties. 'Meyer' makes an excellent turf once established. It is one of the most cold tolerant zoysiagrasses.

*(Amazoy & Z-52 are trademarked names for variety selections sold by various sod marketing companies)

Confederate Tall Fescue

Confederate Tall Fescue is designed especially for the Southeast where the main disease is Brown Patch (Rhizoctonia Solani). The heat and humidity of this area demand very diverse genetic material to combat these very severe growing conditions. Confederate has a moderate growth habit which establishes quickly and has an aggressive nature that better competes with other grasses and weeds. Confederate has an overall pleasing dark-green color, and has the drought, wear and shade tolerance inherent with tall fescues. Confederate was developed for turf grass professionals who demand a great deal from their turf, and appreciate a winning blend when it comes along!
