    Typically you overseed bermudagrass late April to early May.

    But NCSU has done some trials on earlier seeding. I did a Savannah bermudagrass intial seeding in early March and it turned out great for the first year.

    This winter, take a soil sample to your local cooperative extension service. That's a good place to start things.

    All my bermuda lawns right now are getting 5-5-25 with Pendimethalin pre-emergent. This is just for the winter burn and to help keep those cool-season annuals down a little. If you're having problems with the lawn, I'd do nothing right now. Definitely DO NOT fertilize with anything high in nitrogen. It's too close to frost time. If it were me, I'd just let it go. It's about to go dormant anyway.

    Do you know what type of bermudagrass it is? Can you post some pics?

    If it's common bermuda, and the customers are bugged over the appearance, aerate and throw some annual ryegrass on it. You'll look like a genious for at least eight months.:)

    Since you asked. I'm thinking punctuation as in capitals to start a sentence, commas, and periods to end your sentences. Not being nasty or snide, but your grammar makes reading your post almost impossible but your photography is good.
