My Bermuda lawn is turning green now what should I do?

First make sure you have inspected your mower. Did you check/change the oil and spark plug?  How is that air filter from last year? Do the tires need air? Did you empty out that old gas? Do you have sharp the blades? Get these questions answered before you proceed.

Set that mower deck height to cut at 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches tall.

In April and early May, your Bermuda will start to come out of its dormant state. When it is about 50% green, apply a slow-release, high nitrogen fertilizer.  Follow the instructions on the bag or give us a call for professional service.

Mark your calendar – You should apply fertilizer to Bermuda two to three times during the growing season.

A second application should be applied in about six to eight weeks later or as directed on the bag.

The third application in another six weeks may be desired.

If you have weeds apply a lawn weed killer in June to control growing weeds.
