Cynodon hybrida 'Dog Tuff'™ (‘Dog Tuff’™ African Dogtooth Grass) is a homeowner’s dream come true. It is a deep-rooted, low, dense growing turf grass that is very xeric and provides a tough, wear-resistant lawn. It is ideal for kids’ play and stands up to dog traffic and dog urine with little or No damage. A sterile hybrid, this South African native grass was discovered growing as a dense, bright-green area of grass on an isolated ranch in that country. It was brought to the US over thirty years ago, but it has never been available to the public until Now. This grass is considered sterile, so it doesn't spread by seed. It spreads by stolons that root into the ground wherever they can take hold, filling in to a thick, luxurious lawn.
