Core aeration would probably do wonders. Ground is probably hard as a rock if your home was new construction.

Now, that said, I highly recommend getting a good amount of compost into that soil. No matter what type of grass it is, compost can only help. Good luck!
you dont want to much compost in there. Bermuda likes well drained sandy soils. If water sits too long at the root zone you end up with a declining turf as well as root rot and many fungi problems. Think golf greens....they aerate and top dress with SAND
