Hi, I have a bermuda lawn, and I was not happy with the density or amount of green seen last season. The lawn still has the dead shoots from last year, approx 2 inches tall. The new shoots are just beginning to show up. The problem last year was even though the lawn was green and growing, there was a large amount of the brown dead stuff remaining all year long. I was wondering if scalping the lawn now, to bag and remove the dead would be of any benifit. How about de-thatching or aireating(sp)? The lawn is cared for by a professional, but I handle all mowing and trimming. I normally mow once or twice a week, and bag all the time. I was planning on lowering the height this year to about 1 - 1.5". Thanks for any ideas or suggestions.
