Bermuda grass is valued for its exceptional heat and drought tolerance and a capacity to withstand heavy use and recuperate quickly.
Bermuda grass prefers full sun. It is tolerant of heat and drought as well as dry soil, so full sun during to hotter months is not a problem. It is very water-efficient and has few pest problems.
A thick Bermuda lawn naturally resists weeds and chokes out invasive plants as they sprout. Although weeds in Bermuda can make you want to reach for the herbicide, if you remain patient you can cultivate a Bermuda lawn that throttles weeds and leaves you with a pristine yard.
Even neglected, very thin Bermuda grass will spread, so seeding shouldn’t be necessary.
