    Keep it cut at proper height and keep it fertilized. Bermuda will spread and thicken up on its own. If you have bare spots you can plug from thicker areas of your lawn. Seed rate is 1-2 lbs per 1000 for Bermuda I think

    Golden rule for us is half the rate that you would use if you were seeding a new lawn. Tall fescue rate is 8-10 lbs per 1000 sq ft. So overseeding would be 4-5 lbs per1000.
