Bermuda Grass – Comparison: Hulled vs. Unhulled

Q: What is the difference between hulled and unhulled Bermuda grass?

A: Hulled bermudagrass is seed that has had the outer coat removed. It is typically planted in summer at a rate of 1 – 2 lb. per 1000 square feet. Unhulled seed can be planted at a rate of 3 – 5 lb per 1000 sq feet in fall. It simply waits for good growing conditions before it sprouts. In my opinion you’d be better off using hulled seed in early summer. When the soil is warm in June it will come up uniformly and will be easy to care for.
