When To Fertilize A Bermuda Lawn

Q: I have an 8000 square foot bermuda lawn and I use a reel mower. I put down 25 pounds of 32-3-8 in early May. When do I fertilize again? 

A: Much of the decision about fertilizing a bermudagrass lawn depends on your enjoyment of mowing. If you like having deep green grass and can mow every four or five days, fertilize bermudagrass every six weeks. If you are more typically a weekend mower, fertilize every eight weeks. Start when the lawn is 90% green and stop in mid-September.
