Bermudagrass sod is a tough, fine-textured, aggressive, warm-season turf that's just perfect for a pretty lawn or well-performing athletic turf. It does not tolerate shade, so overhangs and trees are a big problem.
It is called the “lazy man’s grass” because it thrives with less care and requires less mowing than many other grasses.
