Emerging Bermuda

Posted to Landscaping Tips by Samantha Thomas

As your Bermuda emerges from dormancy this month with the summer temperatures beginning, you can help to push its growth. If you have not already, you should lay down an application of a nitrogen-rich fertilizer, to help provide the Bermuda with additional nutrients, which will encourage faster and stronger growth. The fertilization is highly beneficial as some Bermuda may struggle to grow out of dormancy naturally. DLC crews have also applied fertilizer to turf areas throughout the Community.

The optimal time to fertilize your lawn is in morning, after dew as evaporated, but when winds are still low and the fertilizer is less likely to blow around. It is also crucial to remember to water your turf immediately following fertilizer application. This watering allows the fertilizer to soak in and helps to avoid burning your turf. 

When applying the fertilizer, always follow the directions on the package to determine correct timing and amounts for your lawn size.
