Bermuda grass is a warm season grass that has fine to medium leaf texture. It is dark green, dense and low growing via rhizomes and stolons, which are the "runners" that you may see branching out from a patch of grass. The root system is extensive and very deep. It is best adapted to hot, dry or tropical climates. Bermuda is recommended for residential and commercial landscapes, golf courses, sports fields, parks and recreation areas. It is an ideal sod for homes with children and pets. Bermuda has excellent heat tolerance - up to 110 degrees - and performs best during periods of heat. It has a winter dormancy period and turns tan to brown at temperatures below 55 degrees. It is highly drought resistant, but also responds to irrigation in dry periods. It can go into summer dormancy when irrigation is withheld, but upon return of a moisture supply, it will green up again. Bermuda requires full sun for most of the day in order to grow properly and should not be used in a shady site. Bermuda is a great choice for yards with full sunlight and heavy traffic.

February: Prevent Weeds Before They Start Growing
When is the right time to apply a pre-emergent weed killer to your lawn? Look for two signals coming directly from nature: a budding dogwood tree, or a flowering forsythia bush.

Fall Lawn Tips
Ah, fall. The start of school, football, and… shorter hours of sunlight. It’s always tough for us to adjust to those limited hours of sunlight as we come home from work and make dinner. But, the limited hours of sunlight affect our grass just as much — if not more so! Once we reach the point of less than 12 hours of sun in a day, this sends a signal to your warm-season sodded lawn to slow down its growth.
