I live in southern region and i have a Bermuda grass and i water every 2 days each zone 20-30 mins based on Rachio sprinkler zone feedback. This has been there from few years Did even dethatching of grass.My grass became thinner in look during fall season to see if I need dethatching after some feedback. Even did aeration done last year. I regularly apply next fertilizer from yardmastery and even tried other recommendations like ironite and milogranite. The top part stays green but the bottom remains unchanged. Any recommendations?

Think about it for a minute before asking.......google it......why do you think growing grass will grow? I suggest you cut it to the ground and maintain a lower cut

Bro,
You mean to scalp it to the lowest setting on the mower?
All the lawn care guys on YouTube suggests that mow the lawn on highest setting. I'm confused.

Bermuda will always be brown below the crown as it only gets green where the sun hits it. It isn't like cool season where the whole leaf is green. Personally I've never understood why people cut bermuda so tall. I maintain mine at 1.5". If my lawn were flat and I had a reel mower it would be even lower. Cut it shorter and there won't be as much brown.

That's just how Bermuda grows. Basically nothing wrong with your lawn except cut higher than "recommended".

I cut my Bermuda at 3" to 3.5" depending on the weather, and it looks similar to yours where it is edged.

Because you're listening to people in the North with cool season grass tell you how take care of Bermuda, which is completely different. It like to be cut short.
