Damn Bermuda Grass

Warning: Overly long story about grass.

A couple of years ago I noticed that I had a good amount of Bermuda grass in a 10' x 15' or so area of my back yard. I'm not sure where it came from, it seemed to just sort of pop up, and I haven't noticed it in any of my neighbors yards.

So in the fall of 2011 I sprayed Roundup on the whole area, let it sit for a couple weeks and then reseeded with fescue. The lawn looked great until early summer when the Bermuda popped back up.

Last fall I was determined to get rid of it once and for all. I sprayed Roundup again. Waited about a week, raked a bit and then sprayed another healthy dose of Roundup. Then I tilled the entire area under, brought in a bit of extra topsoil, reseeded and laid a straw mat.

The seed went down a little later than I would have liked, so it looked a little rough over the winter. But with the wet spring, the grass really took off. By mid-May, it looked as good as the rest of my yard.

I went out yesterday to fire up the grill and about pissed myself. Bermuda grass all over the place again. There wasn't a trace of it a week ago.

I'm pretty much at a loss. I never would have imagined it could come back after I tilled everything under. I suppose I could have stripped the surface before I tilled, but I probably would have had to bring in a bunch more soil.

Any suggestions from the CP grounds crew?

this. Bermuda grass is badass. It can't be killed easily, it grows low to the ground so mowing can be done much less often, and it is so thick, it chokes out weeds. Cut it up and bring it to my house. I'll take it.

Is quackgrass the same thing as bermudagrass? Some of the "alternate" names are the same (couch, quitch, devils, wheat, scutch, twitch, witch, dog or durfa grass) but the descriptions sound different.

I have the same problem.

Did the same thing...sprayed roundup on it last fall and it is coming back. Not as thick...but it isn't gone that's for sure. I am spraying it again. It is frustrating as I have some nice turf around it that is getting killed from the roundup as well.

And no...don't let bermuda take over your lawn. It will create an issue for not only you, but your neighbors. Don't be that guy. And you might as well not have any planting beds as the bermuda will take over that.

Bermuda is not badass.

Looks like I'll give Ornamec a shot. I just find it hard to believe that a "selective kill" chemical is going to do better than glyphosate, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

You have to keep spraying with roundup. It will take a few seasons.

Dont use Orthos bermuda killer...it's a waste. Don't till...you will just spread it.

I'm painfully aware of what nutsedge is. But after a bad couple of years, I think I finally have that particular devil under control.

The good thing is that since it's a relatively small area, it's not an enormous hassle to kill and reseed every year until I figure it out.

Yeah, I reseeded the area I killed off last year. And since Bermuda is a warm season grass, I had false hope this spring when all my seed started to come through without the Bermuda.

I knew better...this past month the Bermuda has slowly been coming back in those areas. ****er.
