Bermuda also fills in from where it germinates, unlike cool season grasses. Do think about your neighbors, though. The only way to keep bermuda in your yard is with concrete walls, even then the stolons will find openings or work under footings that are not deep enough. Zoysia is even worse for working its way through concrete.

Most landscape companies do not know how to properly mow bermuda. They think they are cutting cool season grasses or want to believe that the equipment acceptable on a rye, blue, fescue mix will work. I do know that a good 25" or 27" reel will do the job on a half acre lawn.

sorry that was supposed to be a 25 lb bucket. Local Lesco dealer..


I don't think Massey will be able to help you.. you know they charge $60 plus for an average 2500 sq yard per app so guess what your 21K sq is gonna cost.

While you are at it, build a robot boom sprayer capable of applying up to 5 gallons per thousand. That is what is going to be needed to keep whatever grass you choose as grass and not a hayfield.

For weeds, insects and fertilization. Water comes from a properly set up and operated irrigation system. Not venting or BS ing
