BERMUDA GRASS LAWN CARE

lawn care for bermuda grass

A Bermuda grass lawn is the hardiest and fastest-growing of the warm season grasses and is the preferred grass for sports fields and golf courses because it withstands heat, can be mowed low, repairs quickly, and is drought resistant.

January/February
Spring Pre-Emergent Application

Objective: Target weeds that typically start germinating in early spring including crabgrass, annual bluegrass, goosegrass, lespedeza and some broadleaf weeds.

April/May
Spring Green-up

Objective: Give turf that initial nitrogen feed to promote greening up and leaf & runner (stolen & Rhizomes) growth. We also include another round of pre-emergent to target crabgrass, spurge, and some broadleaf weeds. We use a granular, slow-release fertilizer to provide up to 3 months of feed depending on environmental conditions.

June
Early Summer Application with Clark's SloGro Growth Control

Objective: Boost nitrogen. The application will include micronutrients and bio-solids to help the turf with extreme heat and dry conditions. We add Iron and a growth regulator for color and improved stress relief.

July
Mid-Summer Application with Clark's SloGro Growth Control

Objective: To provide another boost of nitrogen. We also include micronutrients and bio-solids to help the turf get through the extreme heat and dry conditions. Iron and a growth regulator are added for a second round.

August
Late Summer Pre-Emergent

Objective: To get a pre-emergent down that targets Poa annua. This weed germinates in late summer but does not become an eye-sore until early spring.

September
Winterizer

Objective: To get potassium into the soil to prepare the plant for dormancy. Iron is also applied to enhance color without the risk associated with using nitrogen so close to the first freeze.

October
Fall Pre-Emergent

Objective: Apply another round of pre-emergent to target winter weeds and their germination.

November/December
Lime-Weed

Objective: This application adjusts soils with deficiencies in nutrients or soil PH. Based on a soil test, Dolomitic Lime or Sulfur may be applied to raise or lower PH. Any breakthrough winter weeds will be treated if observed.

Weed App*: New customers (first year) with weed problems will be offered post-emergent herbicide applications (weed treatments) based on observations at the time of lawn evaluation. After one full year under our program, Clark's will be responsible for weed issues (other than Sedge) and treat weed problems with the above-scheduled visits.

Perennial Sedge Treatments*: Sedge is a difficult weed to control and reproduces primarily by underground tubers that form at the end of underground stems called rhizomes. This weed can only be controlled with a selective post-emergent herbicide if established before signing up for our lawn care program. Pre-emergents do not affect established Sedge. Overwatering your lawn will promote Sedge growth and population, making the post-emergent necessary.
*Applied as Needed
