We wanted to give an example of the color difference between Celebration Bermuda and Empire and it just so happens that we have both of these grasses next to each other in our office yard and our neighbors yard. We aren’t saying one is better than the other and there are different reasons for using one or the other but we just wanted to show the BIG difference in color.
The grass in the foreground in the picture below is Empire and Celebration is in the background.
Keep in mind that the Celebration in this picture is mowed probably every 3 days with a reel mower. Homeowners typically have rotary mowers and probably won’t want to mow that often either. Celebration doesn’t have to be mowed with a reel mower and doesn’t have to be mowed every 3 days but this particular yard is maintained that way so just wanted you to be aware of that.
They are both excellent grasses that we highly recommend.
