Bermuda Sod – Grass Disappearing

Q: I planted bermuda sod at the end of May. When I started mowing it low and ever since, the green part of the grass disappears.

A: You haven’t been mowing often enough. Lower your mowing height by one notch now so only half of the green part of the grass is removed by the blade. Bermudagrass is slowing down its growth in fall so you may not be able to lower the mowing height to the recommended 1.5″ – 2″ this season. Next year, schedule your mowing every five days, not every week.
