Bermuda Lawn Rescue

Q: Please help me rescue my bermuda lawn. The past couple years of raising young kids has left it in a state of neglect, full of weeds. It has not been fertilized. I’m confused about what to put down, and what order it needs to be applied, and the time in between application.

A: Let’s get the bermuda grass growing vigorously before you try chemical weed control. Wait until the grass is at least 50% green (preferably 80% green) and fertilize it with any lawn fertilizer that does not have weed killer in it. Repeat two more times at eight week intervals. If you mow regularly, the lawn will look pretty good, even with the weeds. I have lawn care calendars for all Georgia lawns at Add weed control to your fertilizer schedule next year.
