Riviera for Sports Turf

Bermudagrass turf

'Riviera' is fast becoming the grass of choice for athletic fields. Don't let the pristine look of  fine textured leaves and beautiful dark green color deceive you. 'Riviera' is the most durable sports grass available.  Superior drought tolerance, heat tolerance, cold tolerance, disease resistance, and most important, wear tolerance, are just a few of the important characteristics that separate 'Riviera' from the rest of the turfgrasses.  'Riviera' is being used in a wide range of venues from high school football, to horse polo, to Major League Baseball. Some are using it as the primary grass, some are using it as a strong base to overseed cool-season grasses.  Whatever, wherever, the application, 'Riviera' stands out as the champion for the turfgrass manager.  'Riviera' has consistently performed very highly in the NTEP trials, university trials, and "real world" applications for nearly a decade.  Early spring greenup gets you on the field earlier, winter hardiness gives you peace-of-mind on those cold winter nights, aggressive lateral growth means the fastest recovery time, and being a seeded variety means cost savings and easy repairs.
