Dormant Bermuda Grass

Bermuda grass starts to go dormant when daytime temps remain about 50 degrees. However, our Bermuda lawns stop active growth when temps hit the 60s.  Now is the time to leave our Bermuda grass ALONE. The only feeding or fertilizer for Bermuda grass during this period should be a MILD spray supplement like Super Juice.  Mild supplement sprays can be used right up until the first frost. They will NOT push out lawns with large amounts of nitrogen like granulars.

In early fall, as the Bermuda grass growth slows prior to the onset of dormancy, the plants convert soluble sugars to starch. They then store these starches in stolons, rhizomes and roots to serve as food reserves to ensure winter survival. Bermuda grass stops growing when temperatures fall below 60 degrees F and will initiate dormancy when temperatures drop below 50 degrees F for an extended period. Dormancy can last from a few weeks to several months depending on conditions. How you manage Bermuda grass in the fall will determine its ability to tolerate cold-temperature stress and survive through the winter months.
