Bermuda Grass Control
If barbecues, pool parties, and croquet are some of your favorite summer activities, you probably love hosting outdoor events. Sometimes, though, lawns don’t cooperate. Hot weather can bring with it a host of pests and lawn diseases that can make lawns look less than spectacular. One annoyance many homeowners deal with is Bermuda grass.
The trouble with Bermuda grass is that “wild” common varieties can quickly get out of control and sprout in areas where they’re not wanted: the neighbor’s lawn, flower gardens, and even field crops. At Nature's Select™ Premium Turf Services, Inc., we have a few different Bermudagrass control options to consider. Contact us at (336) 768-7999 to request your free estimate.
Three Bermudagrass Control Options
When it comes to Bermuda grass control, we offer three options, depending upon your level of tolerance and the percentage of your lawn overtaken by the grass:
OPTION 1Keep the Grass & Overseed with Rye
For many lawns where Bermuda grass is the dominant turf, this is the best option. Our select lawn care program will make the most of the turf you have, while giving you the option to overseed with rye grass in the fall.
OPTION 2Bermuda Suppression
In lawns that are predominantly composed of tall fescue with a few sections of Bermuda grass, suppression works well. Using a combination of control products applied twice in August, Nature's Select™ can reduce the Bermuda grass population in a lawn by 85 to 95 percent.
OPTION 3Bermuda Removal Process
This is the best option when you simply want the Bermuda grass in your lawn gone. This process requires time and patience.
- First, your lawn must be fertilized and allowed to grow tall, then sprayed with a removal product.
- The grass is allowed to wither and die.
- Next, we mow the treated area at a low mowing height.
- The affected areas are sprayed again (one to two more times).
- Finally, we will replace with new turf through seeding.
