Sugar on a lawn with Bermuda grass

Zone Edmond, Oklahoma | Anonymous added on July 13, 2018 | Answered

If my lawn has Bermuda Grass - can I use Sugar help make it a greener lawn? Found on pinterest - "The Secret to a greener lawn - White Table Sugar" which states in the last paragraph - " If you want to make your lawn healthy & at the same time eleminate crabgrass, Bermuda grass, dandelions, clover, dollar weed & other shallow rooted weeds like chickweed, fire your lawn company & start acquiring a sweet tooth!" Don't want to kill off my lawn, just make it greener...any help is greatly appreciated. Diane Hearn - Edmond, OK

Yes, regular white table sugar is a good lawn fertilizer.
Sugar feeds beneficial microbes, insects, and worms
It won’t cause allergic reactions in people or pets
Sugar will fortify grass while discouraging weeds
It is easy to apply
It is cheap
Sugar will not only make your lawn green … but ‘green’, that is free from chemicals that damage the soil, our water supply, and ourselves.
