Bermuda is great if you are in the right climate for it. It needs water, fertilizer and heat. Check with your extension people and see if they recommend Bermuda for your area and which variety.

Jiggs bermuda grass is about the best thing around here. With proper fertilizing it grows like crazy. Bahaia is also a good, heat tolerant grass.
