What do you recommend doing to Bermuda lawns for the winter months. I live in Dallas, TX. Should I continue cutting my lawn at the same height or should I raise or lower the height for the colder weather? What kind of winter fertilizer or weed killers do you recommend applying in the upcoming months? Thanks for any assistance in advance.

Raise the height of cut by half, wait until mid Nov, and put out an application of 21-0-0 Ammonium Sulphate. Cycle the irrigation system about 1/3 of time you have programmed in now. You can begin to apply all sorts of micronutrient based granular soil stimlants now. Microbial content in the soil needs to remain active through out the cooler months. Lesco's a good place to check.
Depending upon the severity of your dormancy, to minimize spring dead spot, consider an application of a fungicide such as Bayleton, or even better, chlorothalinal - similar to Lesco's Revere.

I'm with GAGrassMan.... I'd leave it at the regular cutting height, until the winter/spring transition next year. Put down a pre-emergent NOW!!! 0-0-7 w/Pre-M would be best. Not need to add fert with N since it's going dormant.

Aerate the lawn during the winter/spring transiton.

Oh yeah... scalp it prior to aerating it then another app of 0-0-7 w/pre-m.
