BENEFITS

  • Drought-Tolerant: Bermuda grows best with at least a moderate amount of water, but it can get through dry weather when necessary. It won’t necessarily look its best while that’s happening, but you can be confident that, once the grass isn’t so thirsty, it’ll return to its normal appearance.
  • Resilient: A popular choice for spaces that experience a lot of foot traffic, like athletic fields and golf courses, it can with stand the kind of compaction that comes with heavy wear.
  • Resistant to Pests: In the right conditions, Bermuda can resist a variety of attackers, including armyworms, cutworms, mealybugs and mites. However, if those populations get large enough, or if the environment isn’t ideal, this grass will need a little support.
  • Self-Restoring: Bermuda can repair damage to itself as blades of grass grow. It’s an especially good choice for golf courses and sports fields, as well as high-traffic yards across our region.

BERMUDA LAWN CARE PLAN

The Arbor-Nomics yearly Bermuda lawn care plan is designed to create a lush and hardy lawn.

Application #1: A pre-emergent to prevent most grassy weeds (including crabgrass) from showing up this spring and a weed control to kill broadleaf weeds that have germinated. Potassium and phosphorus to provide nutrients as your lawn comes out of dormancy, enhancing the root structure for stronger, thicker growth.

Application #2: A second application of pre-emergent and broadleaf weed control. The pre-emergent blocks the development of crabgrass and many other kinds of grassy weeds, and the broadleaf weed control will cause those weeds to yellow and die. Arbor-Organics will be applied to help roots grow stronger and thicker while controlling surge growth and the spread of funguses in the spring and summer.

Application #3: Arbor-Organics fertilizer to nourish turf until our next visit, plus weed control to minimize broadleaf weeds and keep your lawn looking its best.

Application #4: Arbor-Organics fertilizer, which will provide nutrition to the grass until our next visit, plus weed control to minimize broadleaf weeds.

Application #5: A pre-emergent to prevent grassy weeds from germinating in the wintertime and a broadleaf weed control. Those weeds should die off within two weeks of the treatment.

Application #6: A pre-emergent to prevent winter weeds and a treatment to get rid of broadleaf weeds.

Application #7: A mix of calcium and magnesium to help maintain optimal soil pH. This application reduces acidity to promote healthier, more vigorous turf. Weed control as needed.
