Bermuda Lawn – Burning

bermuda burned

Q: What is the advantage, if any, to burning a Bermuda grass lawn when dormant?

A: You might get an unanticipated conversation with your insurance person, but it might not be so pleasant. My father was an insurance agent for 35 years. He had several clients who set their carport, siding, shed, car, etc. on fire while burning their lawn. With dry grass, even a small breeze can push a little fire quickly beyond your control. The claims that burning a lawn add nutrients to the soil are false.
