General Information on Celebration bermuda grass

 Close up of Celebration BermudaCelebration is a hybrid cultivar of bermuda grass developed in Australia for exceptional functionality in a wide range of applications. Celebration was brought to the U.S. in 2002 and was subsequently released into Texas by Sod Solutions, Inc. and the Turf Producers of Texas. It is currently being grown by 15 sod producers throughout the state.

Celebration is a dark-green bermudagrass selected for superior wear recovery, its lower maintenance requirements and its ability to survive in drought conditions. Ongoing research in Texas over the last two years stands behind its performance. In a study done by the San Antonio Water System (SAWS), Celebration was put to the test against 25 various turf varieties. After 60 days of simulated drought conditions receiving no water, then 60 days of recovery, Celebration was among the top overall grasses for delayed dormancy and for drought recovery. It had a 100 percent recovery rate after 60 days.

We believe Celebration is one of the best options for turfgrass in Texas. We are always available if you have questions or concerns.
