Planting Bermuda Grass

Zone 32931 | gregmitchell added on September 10, 2018 | Answered

Hello, i want to spray my mixtures of green grass/weeds in my lawn with Round-up and then ovreseed with Bermuda Grass. I was traveling - my irrigation pump broke and all good grass died. The existing, dead grass/weeds will act a mulch and then few weeds. I will spray in with strong water volume and rake in seed and then water again. What of this idea? i live in Central Florida - can i plant Bermuda Grass this time of year? Greg

Greg, I recommend that you complete your herbicide application to kill the weeds, give it a couple of weeks or a month, then consider seeding with a winter rye grass. Seed your bermuda in the spring when it will get off to a better start than it would at this time of year.
