As your Bermuda lawn prepares to enter a state of dormancy, here's a few tips to keep your lawn clean and healthy:
Don't scalp your lawn before spring. Allowing your lawn to thicken up just before going dormant will help to combat winter weeds and insulate root systems.
Apply preemergent in September to keep winter weeds from germinating. Read the label and follow application rates.
Do not apply fertilizers after September. The use of quick release nitogen fertilizers will encourage growth and new growth can be injured by a early cold snap. New growth has a chance to harden off before cold weather sets in by stopping fertilizing early.
