Bermuda Lawn Summer Scalp and Aerate

Doc and crew spend three long days scalping and aerating the Bermuda lawn.  Summer is the perfect time to to aerate your Bermuda lawn.  This allows water, air, and nutrients to go deep into the soil.  At the same time scalping and aerating the lawn opens up the thick lawn and reduces build up.  When aerating your Bermuda lawn make sure you cut the grass very low. This will allow better penetration of the tines and make picking up the cored easier.  After your done, apply PGF Complete and HUMICHAR.

I bought a ryan renothin several years ago and used it to verticut my zoysia and bermuda for several years. Also I bought a superseeder which is made by stinger equipment out of Kentucky. It works really well as a verticut and have used it several times. Verticutting will initially thin but after fertilization and rain will tighten up bermuda and as nodes are created. If I don’t verticut, water has a difficult time getting to the soil. Also I verticut when the soil is damp but not soggy. I like to cut the grass low a day or two… Read more »

Ok, Doc now I am confuse, I just started seeing progress on my Bermuda, work from scratch, since last year, Why scalp and aerate in the middle of summer? Specially if the lawn is looking good, I am following your Bermuda calendar and according to your calendar scalping is on Spring. Why do it more than twice a year?

I am in a relatively new home and opted for Bermuda grass for my lawn. My neighbor has zoysia. My lawn is pretty healthy and I have been following your videos and your handbook but I started getting creep from my neighbor’s zoysia along our shared property line and I also have several patches where centipede or St. Augustine grass is invading. Is there anything I can put on the St. Aug and or zoysia that will halt its growth> How do I get the Bermuda to take back its rightful place?
