Start cutting it with a reel mower and it will look even better.

Too late in the year to scalp and reel mow as well

I've already noticed lawns on their way out...it seems like they just greened up!

I would topdress only when daytime temps don't exceed 90 degrees and we are getter rain. In my opinion the best time is in June when it rains, temps are warm enough from Bermuda growth and you have plenty of time for lawn to recover. July would be ok if you can irrigate.

Think i am going to try in early june next year in my backyard with about 2 yards of sand just to practice and get my method down correctly. Then I will attempt the front yard in about 3-4 sections. I have a little more than 8000sqft and I ama single man operatin so I am going to have to break it up. The only thing that is killing me is I am going to have to pay for multiple delivery fees for the sand to come.

Photographs of grass look best if you can take the picture on a cloudy day.

Naturally do not try to grow Bermuda in shade.
