Tifway 419 is the choice of most professional sports fields and golf courses in Arizona. Chosen for maximum durability, fine texture, and drought resistance, it is especially suitable for the tough summer climate in Phoenix. However, it does require more maintenance than other grasses. If you have the time to keep it up, it can be a beautiful choice.
Tifway 419 is best for sports fields and golf courses, and those individual consumers who will sacrifice several days a week mowing to have a luxury golf course-type lawn. It is most functional and beautiful at ¾ inch height, so it will require significantly more maintenance than other lawns.
