Evergreen Turf: Exclusive Arizona sod supplier of MiniVerde bermudagrass
Evergreen Turf, your Arizona sod producer, is proud to be the premier supplier of MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass in Arizona and California. MiniVerde Bermudagrass was designed specifically for high-stress golf course greens and has received praise from golf course superintendents and golfers alike.
“I’ve really come to love and appreciate the challenge that this golf course [TPC Sawgrass] provides, and a few years ago when the course was changed to Mini Verde on the greens, it made a big difference,” said Phil Mickelson, 2010 Masters champion and Arizona State University alum. “I think the ball rolls and tracks so much better. And the less rough as opposed to having big, thick hay, having shots that are fliers, and you’re able to get up-and-down around the greens or at least have a chance has made this golf course fun as well as challenging.”
Evergreen Turf recently installed two new MiniVerde greens at the TPC Stadium Course in Scottsdale and the first MiniVerde greens were planted in Palm Springs on July 7. Evergreen Turf has now officially shipped MiniVerde bermudagrass coast to coast.
About MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass
MiniVerde is a high shoot density, stoloniferous bermudagrass for production of high quality golf greens. MiniVerde tolerates continuous close mowing, has a dark green genetic color and excellent low temperature color retention. It does not exhibit purple leaf coloration due to anthocyanin production typical of Tifdwarf bermudagrass exposed to low, non-freezing temperatures.
In mild climates, MiniVerde may make sufficient growth through the winter months so that over-seeding is not required to provide an attractive winter color.
MiniVerde will tolerate relatively high amounts of sodium and therefore is adapted for use with reclaimed water. MiniVerde also tolerates soil pH levels of from 5.5 to 9.0 but will perform best at pH 6.0 to 6.5. MiniVerde also has few pest problems and tolerates close, frequent mowing.
