Now is the Time to Attack That Annoying Bermuda Grass in San Diego

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Sunday, 26 July , 2015

Anyone who has a lawn that they want to take care of and have look as nice as possible understands that there are certain pests that are as persistent as anything in the plant world. People tend to think that it’s easy to grow and maintain a manicured lawn in San Diego because the weather is so mild, but the fact of the matter is that this climate also makes it easier for unwanted plant life to survive and to thrive at certain points of the year.

One of the most notorious and despised enemies of lawns anywhere in San Diego County is Bermuda grass. Many people have fallen behind on their battle with this lawn bandit and simply given up and switched over to it after figuring that there was no way around it. While some people prefer this type of grass for their lawn, others vow to fight on until they can control it. Below you will find a brief overview of what can be done to combat this pest, and those who want professional help should seek the advice of experienced San Diego landscaping professionals as soon as possible.

Take Advantage of the Winter

Anyone who attempts to maintain a lawn realizes that Bermuda grass tends to thrive during the summer and dry season when the weather is warm and the air is devoid of moisture. This is a plant that can literally be seeded through the air, and it will usually outlive other forms of grass even without water. However, Bermuda grass is also at its weakest in the winter, when the weather is cooler and wetter and the plant is more pliable in general. This is the time to attack it.

Use Effective Spray

Many people can tell tales of spending days digging up the Bermuda grass on their lawns only to see it come back quickly. That’s because it roots deeply in the soil. Therefore, the best way to get ahead of it is to spray it with powerful chemicals that will penetrate the soil and get to the rooting system of the Bermuda grass. This may take some time, but it will also be more effective in the long run for those who want to put a dent in its growth.

Remain Vigilant

Too many homeowners have successfully gotten on top of their Bermuda grass growth only to relax and have it come back. Rest assured – Bermuda grass will keep coming. Once you get ahead of it, you need to stay on top of it and remove any signs of it when it appears. This could involve digging it out when it sprouts or spraying it again.

If you are sick and tired of dealing with Bermuda grass and you want to really give it a blast, you need to seek the help of San Diego landscaping professionals who have been helping homeowners with their lawns for many years.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
