My wife and I moved into a new home last October. The first week or so of October, the builder put down bermuda in the front and back yard. The winter hit (we're in Dallas, so it is mild) but it was enough to prevent the yard from really ever filling in. It has always had a very "patchy" look to it. On one side of our house is are empty lots - same across the street - and then a neighbor on the third side. We water M/W/F for 10 minutes in each "zone" of our sprinkler system. I put down Halts crabgrass preventer but I think it was too late when I did and I have also used Scott's Southern Turf Builder fertalizer with little to no affect. I'm really not even sure what's going on - most of the yard doesn't even look like grass - it just doesn't grow. I've had a couple of recommendations - one person mentioned that I should overseed with ryegrass for the winter, then try and build the bermuda back up in the spring. His theory was that the ryegrass would kill off anything else in the yard during the winter, leaving the bermuda a better yard to grow in when it burned off. Another person just said to be a winterizer/fertalizer on it for now and in the spring put down a fertalizer, but I am skeptical cause I feel like it will take more than that (seems far too passive to change things). I'm new to all of this, so ANY suggestions are welcome - I'm just trying to get all the input I can before proceeding. I can get more pics if these don't work (sorry - I didn't realize some of the settings on my camera until I had already taken the pics, so they have a real shallow depth of field and the whole shot isn't in focus). Thanks!
