    Can anyone tell me why this bermuda is so much thinner than the yard next to it that's getting the same treatment and sun (mostly sun and then pure sun in the parkway)? The first two photos are of the thin yard the last is the neighbor's that we also treat. They were both treated with liquid nitrogen March 26th. We've had quite a bit of rain the past month.

    Did they both come around just as fast last season?

    Here is how you get bermuda going! 46-0-0 with an hour of water from a sprinkler system every 3 days if it don't rain. My neighbor gave me this tip a few years before he died. He won yard of the month all the time.

    Bermuda, don't like shade!. Also, check soil sample! Ph, may need adjustments!.

    i would check ph and probe the good lawn's owner for any added app's that he does...
    prehaps he limes his.
    i had a cust who always did extra fert in between apps and would never own up to it just to show up the neighbors... drove me crazy
