    will cutting bermuda grass in the winter time kill it?

    No, it will not kill the bermuda because you are only cutting off the dormant turf. Lowering the height of cut will take off more of the dormant bermuda and you will get a quicker greenup.

    Only if you cut it, nuke it, and pour 6 inches of concrete over it. At that point the bermuda will only be growing through the expansion joints in the concrete.

    even with my walker mower i scalp it down to the dirt in som unlevel spots. it will spread and fill in those areas. im also looking at having my front yard (about 6500 sqft) sanded. ive had two quotes one was for 1500 and the other was 1200. i can scalp and aerate myself but i dont have a spreader to spread the sand even. (i dont even know where to get the sand thats mixed with compost) can i rent a machine that will spread the river sand for me? thank guys

    I tried to enter answer of one word, NO. but was too short of a reply. Your description is the best I have seen. That stuff will come up through asphalt and thrive.
