Millions of football fans that watched last Sun-day’s Super Bowl might have marveled at State Farm Stadium’s innovative retractable football field.

Lush and verdant, the turfgrass planted on that field is a hybrid Bermuda grass sold exclusively in Hawaii by Hawaiian Turfgrass.

“It’s called Tahoma 31® bermudagrass, and it’s the grass used for fields for the NFC Championship, the AFC Championship and the biggest game of all — the Super Bowl,” says Sean Fong, owner of Hawaiian Turfgrass. “The extensive root system of this exceptional turfgrass helps make it tough enough to hold up to professional games and huge halftime shows. We’re currently installing Tahoma 31 on Nanakuli High School’s football field. And, it’s simply an excellent grass for lawns here in Hawaii.”


Through Feb. 28 Tahoma 31® (normally $3.25 per square foot) will be available at the special sale price of just $2 per square foot, exclusively at Hawaiian Turfgrass.


You don’t have to be a football fan to appreciate the qualities of Tahoma 31®. Created in 2007 at Oklahoma State University, this turfgrass went through rigorous testing for more than 15 years

through the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) before being released for commercial production a decade later. NTEP now ranks Tahoma 31® as the top performer in areas like wear tolerance, low-water use, shade tolerance and divot recovery.

Extremely dense and durable, Tahoma 31® has a dark green col-or with fine leaf blades.


“It’s a super durable grass that can withstand varied mowing heights, drought stresses, salinity and shade — conditions that negatively affect other bermudagrasses,” says Fong. “And it thrives in full sun.”

Each variety sold by Hawaiian Turfgrass is bred to be more drought-tolerant and pest-resistant, and to require less mowing, than common older grasses. In addition to Tahoma 31®, Hawaiian Turfgrass offers Captiva St. Augustine, El Toro Zoysia, Seastar Seashore Paspalum and Zeon Zoysia, all grown in the native soil of its 67-acre Mililani farm.

At you’ll find everything you need to place an order for Tahoma 31® or one of the company’s other varieties. It’s packed with information to help you make a properly informed decision about the best grass for your lawn before you call to schedule installation. And remember, Tahoma 31® will be on sale for just $2 per square foot through Feb. 28.

If you prefer to handle installation yourself, you can arrange for pickup or curbside delivery on the website.


“We’ve made turfgrass shopping simple and convenient, like buying a carpet,” Fong says. “And we try to offer grasses for every budget. But Tahoma 31® is truly exceptional for Hawaii lawns.”
