Looks awesome! Thats not a bad idea either, I kinda like to piss off my neighbors lol jk. But I do love my yard to be green

P.S. I'm pretty sure I spy a Crown Vic Police Interceptor a few drives down.

Lol at least you have it down. A winter around here wouldn't lend itself to green grass, I didn't know you had such fair weather where you were.

Yeah that's a detective that lives down the street.

Right before the Bermuda shuts down in the fall I scalp it down to about 1" then spread seed and starter fert. In the spring when Bermuda starts taking off good I scalp the rye down to about 1" and that along with high temps usually kills it out. Then I have green Bermuda all summer until I repeat the process in the fall.

Now, in Oklahoma, does the rye grow and need mowed all winter, or only in early spring? I know further south it grows all winter...
For around here is grows all winter, but very slow for what I have seen. Now that spring is here it is realy taking off.

Do you bag the clippings then just spread the seed and fert on the ground? Do you do anything else?

yes I bag the clippings with my Walker then spread seed and fert and water water water. Some people use a slit seeder machine but I don't have one.

I am in southwest OK and I have seen a little bit of buffalo grass but not much. What I have seen is pretty thin and doesn't look too nice.

Just thought I would update this thread with a pic of my overseeded rye for this year. I did a little different this year and so far I am pleased with it. I used a perennial ryegrass blend and used a slit seeder to seed it with. I seem to have much better germination than normal, even though we are in a pretty good dry spell and have been for a while.

This pic is from a couple weeks ago after the FIRST mowing, so the color is not as dark green as it will be when the grass matures a little. I'll post another pic next time I mow to show the progress. It was mowed with my Walker 48"GHS.
