    It will take over your lawn and it dies back in the winter leaving the lawn brown.

    I hate bermuda with a passion. I had a lady call me wanting to put it in her yard. If I put it in her yard....I doubt I would get anymore business in the area!

    here we are 100% sand (small island). bermuda does really well here. only problem with sand is sting nematodes. also our soils are extremely alkaline, so bermuda has a pale green color.
