    Hello again and another thank you for all of your help last fall! I received a ton of compliments on the lawn at the wedding & gave all the credit to you guys. Funny as I had several (mostly older) people a little puzzled say "who helped you"? I just laughed & said some people on the internet :laugh:

    Anyway, I've got some strange grasses/ weeds that have popped up over the winter. My question is now that the bermuda is dormant is it ok to go ahead & spray them now with some gly or should I wait until spring? I don't want to do anything that will have a negative effect on the bermuda. Scott

    You could lightly spot spray those fescues, ryes and clovers popping up with no more than 2% gly per gallon while the bermuda grass is dormate. But with reg compost top dressing and tea that bermuda should and will stangle out everythng. Take a http://www.grassstitcher.com/ - seed and cover with a light compost top dressing this spring those problem areas. You could slit seed an annual rye this fall and have green all year. Rye only cost you about - $70 for 14,000 sq ft.

    DJK....I see your just down the street from me. Thanks for the compliment!

    Barefoot....Thanks for the 2% info. That's what I'll do. The front yard has actually filled in since I posted that last pic. Very few bare areas now... it just needs a season to fill in.

    This spring I have a 41,000 sqft area in the back that I will be renovating like I did the front. Little larger area but at least it is semi-level ground. Still undecided whether I'm going to plant bermuda or blue grass. I prefer the looks of the blue grass over the bermuda but I haven't forgotten about the drought we were in a couple years ago. Might be a game time decision :laugh: Scott

    No bg just go bermuda and overseed with Rye and you'll have the best looking grass all yr round between bermuda and rye. It does look like you let the bermuda go into dormant dry.
