Bermuda grass is a type of warm season turf grass which grows rapidly from May through October while going dormant during the cooler months. Keeping a Bermuda lawn healthy year around is a process. The climate in Lubbock, TX can make keeping a Bermuda grass lawn challenging but rewarding.
Bermuda Grass Care
In the Northwest region of Texas, specifically Lubbock, lack of moisture is the most common downfall of a manicured Bermuda lawn. Bermuda grass is much more drought tolerant than other turf grasses seen in our region, but make no mistake, it is not as resilient as our native prairie grasses. Lawn irrigation allows for supplemental watering during the harsh summer heat and also allows for effective granular applications without rainfall.
Fertilization is key to maintaining a healthy lawn in Lubbock, TX. While Nitrogen is extremely important for Bermuda grass during its growing period, a balanced fertilizer will maintain a healthy root system and a good soil environment.
Weed control in Bermuda grass starts with a healthy lawn. Bermuda grass’s aggressive nature tends to discourage and choke out less vigorous weeds and unwanted grasses during its growing season. During dormancy, pre-emergent and post emergent weed control are extremely effective. Pre-emergent as early as January can give your lawn the head start it needs going into the warmer months.
