Download PDF Spec Sheet

Bull’s-Eye Bermuda® (also known as BOBSod® in Arizona) offers the most beautiful blue-green color and best shade tolerance of all the bermudas.  It combines the beautiful color of bluegrass, the texture and feel of zoysiagrass, and the durability of Tifway.  Bull’s-Eye is exceptionally tough, has virtually no seed heads, and resists scalping.  Like all our hybrid bermudas, Bull's-Eye is a drought tolerant grass, and requires very little water compared to cool season grasses like fescue.
