#1: Bermuda grass question

Posted on 2006-07-20 02:27:31 by AndyS

Andy writes,

In my yard, I have Bermuda grass that I put in last summer. It is
sparse
and thin and looks about like the hair on my head.....

In my garden , I have another strain, apparently, of Bermuda. It
is
growing well and sending out rhyzones and stolones and doing everything
that it can to take over my garden.

How can I get the Bermuda in my yard to take on the characteristics
of the
Bermuda in my garden? Is there something like giving more water,
less
water, more fertilizer, less fertilizer, mow it long, mow it short ----
that will
stimulate runners and make it more plush ??

Thanks,

Andy in Texas

aerate 1 or twice in growing season, works like magic, takes a year or two

How much sun, water, and fertilizer does your yard get? Also, how compacted
is your soil, and where do you live?

With 8 hours/day of direct sun in a warm climate, a couple of inches of
water a week, uncompacted soil, and 4, 5, or 6 lbs of nitrogen per 1,000
sf/yr, the stuff will grow like... well like bermuda grass. That is to say
very quickly.

Since the bermuda in your garden grows well, I assume your climate is
appropriate, so you need to check on sun, water, fertilizer, and soil
compaction in your lawn.

Water often in this heat, mow often, if it is not in the sun it won't do
well.

Best fertilizer I have found is Greensense Lawn and Garden Fertilizer 6-2-4.
