Celebration Bermudagrass is an Australian Breed Cynodon dactylon developed by renowned turfgrass breeder Rod Riley that offers specifiers, landscapers, golf course designers, sportsturf managers and homeowners exceptional performance across a wide spectrum of applications. Celebration requires less mowing than typical bermuda varieties and has tough runners, rhizomes, and deep roots that provide excellent sod strength, wearability, and improved drought tolerance. While shade tolerance research is ongoing at the university level, Celebration is the first bermudagrass to exhibit improved tolerance in sportsturf comparisons. Celebration has also been included in several comparative bermudagrass studies including the 2002 National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) trials where early observations are very promising.
Reduced production costs are achieved by Celebration's rapid expansion rate, reproduction from rhizomes, and natural chemical resistances (similar to other Bermudagrasses) for easier weed control. Celebration has proven its ability to thrive in hot, humid conditions in a variety of applications and has performed well in sandy and clay soil types with aggressive growth from its runners and rhizomes. Celebration can be mowed with a standard rotary mower due to its broader leaf and open growth habit. This versatile turfgrass has thrived in agricultural zones 6b-11 and is being tested in zones 5 and 6a for cold hardiness extremes.
Genetic purity and preservation of the Celebration Bermudagrass variety is of the utmost importance to Sod Solutions. Only turfgrass producers licensed by Sod Solutions are authorized to grow Celebration for sale. All Celebration Bermudagrass grown and distributed across the United States is certified by local state crop certification agencies that provide rigid standards and regulations for production, harvesting, and handling, that when adhered to, ensure a genetically pure, high quality, "certified" product.

"The two things that impress me the most about Celebration are its drought tolerance and low fertility requirements. Side by side plots with 419 in the field strongly suggest that you can produce superior turf with Celebration using significantly less water and fertilizer inputs."
Lewis C. "Chip" Powell, President Powell Golf Design Co. Bradenton, FL 34202 firstname.lastname@example.org
"I like the dark blue-green color. I am also impressed with the rapid lateral growth."
Paul Crawford, Golf Superintendent
"For me, the grass is fantastic. Celebration is on my tees, and has done well where other turfgrasses didn't work. Celebration is a lot tighter on the bunkers. It appears to have more shade tolerance than Tifway 419. I feel that it's done well for me so far; and, over time I'll have an even better feel for it as a replacement for other selections."
Gary Snyder, Golf Superintendent
"One of the most impressive things about this turfgrass is its density: it's thicker, denser, and greener than 419, and has about four times the horizontal growth. Celebration's root mass is intense. It has excellent shade tolerance. The color is just beautiful."
Ken Burnett, Golf Superintendent

Jody Peele Director of Public Services Town of Mt. Pleasant Mt. Pleasant, SC
"Before switching to Celebration, I practically had to replace my football field between the hash marks every year; now, I don't have to. Celebration saves me time and money and looks great. I am converting all my athletic fields to Celebration."
Cecil "Fig" Newton, Director of Public Services

"Prior to choosing Celebration, I visited the polo fields at nearby Lakewood Ranch, where Celebration was installed. My first impression of the turf was how carpet-like it looked. I was equally impressed with how well it has held up under polo play. Two-months after installation of the rolled sod at our $300,000 soccer complex, I was impressed with how quickly Celebration tacked down, and that it was already thick and green."
Bill Ward, Parks & Recreation Manager
City of North Port, FL
"Celebration has been a blessing to our school and athletic programs. It has been great for our limited budget because it requires little watering and low chemical maintenance. It has lived up to its 'Billing'."
