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?

Me either. Almost sounds like some dormant seeds germinated in the spring after the Roundup kill. Maybe get the next batch of fescue growing good and then hit it with pre-emergents in the fall and spring. Bermuda germinates when the soil temp his 70 so I'd make sure to time the pre-emergent well next year.

May want to get a little help here - http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7453.html

One other item - be sure to clean the underside of your lawnmower deck after each mowing. You could be "reseeding" the stuff without knowing.

Turflon Ester. If the lawn is Fescue also spray with Ornamec. The Turflon Ester is OK on Bluegrass or Fescue. Bermuda runners are long. If your neighbor has it, you will get it. Best bet is to get your neighbors to fight it too. Roundup and re-seeding is your best bet, but it will take several applications. Start now with Roundup. Fertilize and water the area. When it comes back (it will) hit it again. Good luck. I live next to a golf course. It is a yearly battle.

Buy some beach sand, a spreader, and a used walking greens mower. Top dress regularly, then mow the shit down tight and have your own putting green.

Once you've killed it off again and got your new fescue growing you need to put down a pre-emergent a few times, especially in the spring before the bermuda germinates.

The guy across the street from me actually put in Bermuda sod. We couldn't believe it, and it looks like shit too.

I hate the stuff. We've been able to control it for the most part, but if there's a thin spot in the fescue, it pops up.
