Water Needs: Low–apply .5 to 1 inch of water as a deep soaking every 5-7 days to encourage a deep, healthy root system during dry or hot periods. Avoid frequent shallow watering that result in shallow roots, permitting weed germination and growth.
Mowing & Thatching: Optimum mowing height of 1/2-1 inch for high quality lawn. Mow regular with a sharp reel or rotary mower, allowing clippings from frequent mowing to remain on the lawn. Never remove more than 1/3 of shoot growth at one mowing. Bermuda grass does develop thatch at higher nitrogen levels and may require vertical cutting. Fertilize and water well after vertical cutting.
Soil & Fertilization Needs: Tolerates alkaline and slightly acidic soils–Use a complete fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium in spring and fall–Apply N at 2-4 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. of lawn annually. For quality hybrid Bermuda grass turf, apply 1/2-1 lb. nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. at monthly interval during growing season.
Weed Control: MSMA and 2-4D will control any weeds. Will probably need 2 applications early spring, 7-10 days apart. Continue applications until weeds eliminated. Do not water treated areas for at least 24 hours after application.
