    Do not do it. It will look like crap like others have said. If you can throw a hula-hoop in a Bermuda lawn and wherever it lands if there is a couple of sprigs in there then you can have a full lawn with mowing, fertilizer, water sunlight and herbicides.

    If it was abnormally rainy and cloudy this year. I would let the thin grass go without trying to thicken it up. When the sun comes out next year, you should be good. If I remember rightly, you scalped and sanded this year. I never do something like that to a lawn if there is not going to be sunny, dry weather after the operation. Bermuda likes the sun and is not a water plant.
