    I am going to be replacing a yard this fall that has been taken over by bermuda or zosyia grass. My question is can I simply spray it with roundup good, wait a couple weeks and till it then level it and reseed? I didn't know if the runners being tilled under would grow back or not.

    So if I spray this stuff and wait and till in under it won't come back? I'm worried about it growing back from the runners.

    I just killed about 1000 sq feet of bermuda, dallis, and st augustine grass in my yard this week.

    get round up pro @ 2 .oz per gallon concentrate.

    Mow down the yard to a regular level, and then a week later, spray whatever is left.

    Just gotta get a loader to scrape all that stuff out of there so I can lay down new sod.

    If you are going to wait till fall, be sure you spray the bermuda or zoyzia before it goes dormant. If you wait untill it is dormant before you spray you will have a good stand of bermuda next year.
