Fairly new to the south and it's wonderful bermuda grass. Several of my neighbors "burn" their grass as the first site of green. Question is: what are the advantages and disadvantages of this? The only thing I can think of would be that it destroys the thatch buildup, but wouldn't simply aerating take care of a lot of that. Seems like a waste of time to me, but their lawns greened up beautifully last year (they also tend to spend more time on their lawns than most neighbors though). Any help would be appreciated! I can't imagine any LCO's in the areas are actually offering this service.
