Reseeding Bermuda grass
Reseeding Bermuda grass in your lawn is something to consider. Do you need it? Is it time?
Bermuda grass is the most popular choice for lawns in our Southern region. It loves full sun, thrives in our heat and is very tolerant to drought and traffic. However, Bermuda grass does have nutritional requirements and some might say “high maintenance”. If your Bermuda grass looking a little thin, reseeding might be an option.
Thin Bermuda grass?
Bermuda grass goes dormant over the winter, and as always dormant doesn’t mean dead. Dormant Bermuda grass may be brown, but it is just resting. As the temperature warms, Bermuda grass breaks dormancy and it starts producing a lot of new growth.
When is the best time to reseed Bermuda grass?
The best time to reseed Bermuda grass is in the spring, but established Bermuda grass lawns rarely need to be reseeded.
How can I keep my Bermuda grass strong?
There are several things you can do as a homeowner to help your Bermuda grass get strong.
- Aeration early in the growing season relieves the stress of compacted soil.
- Warm temperatures and a good fertility program make all the difference for Bermuda grass.
What makes a Bermuda lawn healthy?
A healthy lawn can fight off weeds, drought and disease better than a weak lawn. Here are some suggestions:
- Mow at a lower height
- Water after mowing
- Get rid of weeds
Comparing a healthy lawn to a healthy body makes this easy to understand. A healthy lawn is strong, free of weeds, and gets plenty of air and water and nutrients. When that healthy lawn is attacked by disease, weeds, drought or insects it has a much better chance of surviving and thriving. Just like healthy bodies! Our Lawn 360 program puts a plan into place for your lawn to receive the proper nutrients at the correct time.
