Bermuda Grass Lawns
Bermuda grass is a medium-to-fine textured warm-season turf grass that spreads by rhizomes and stolons. It has excellent heat, drought, and salt tolerance but does not do well in shade. Bermuda grass is the most widely used species on athletic fields and golf course fairways / tee boxes due to its high wear tolerance and rapid recovery. It can also be a very invasive and hard to control weed in some turf settings. There are many different hybrids of Bermuda grass that range from fine to coarse in leaf texture.

Bermuda Grass FAQs
How often should I water Bermuda grass?
Warm-season grasses like Bermuda grass typically need 1 inch of rainfall per week. If rainfall has met or exceeded 1 inch, additional irrigation is not required.
How much sunlight does Bermuda grass need?
As a warm-season grass, Bermuda grass loves the sun. We recommend that Bermuda lawns receive 7-8 hours of full, direct sunlight each day. Bermuda grass that doesn’t receive enough sunlight throughout the day will lack the vibrant green color or may even thin out. Bermuda grass grows the best when soil temperatures are 55°F and above.
Does Bermuda grass grow in the shade?
Shady lawns don’t provide enough sunlight for Bermuda grass to thrive. You may see dry patches or thin growth if your Bermuda grass isn’t receiving the appropriate amount of sunlight.
How often should I fertilize Bermuda grass?
Bermuda grass should be fertilized 4-6 times throughout the growing season (late spring to early fall) to promote healthy growth.
How tall does Bermuda grass grow?
The ideal height for warm-season grasses is 2-2.5 inches. While Bermuda grass can grow quite tall, it’s important to mow frequently to prevent shock. Bermuda grass does best when mowed at or around 2 inches.
When does Bermuda grass go dormant?
Bermuda grass enters dormancy in late fall and winter when soil temperatures drop below 50° Fahrenheit.
