Midlawn Bermuda

  • Dense turf, rapid growth, and cold-hardiness makes Midlawn an excellent choice for high-traffic areas such as sports fields, golf courses, and homes with children and pets.
  • Performs best during periods of heat and turns brown and enters dormancy at temperatures below 55 degrees.
  • Excellent drought resistance. Can go into dormancy when irrigation is withheld, but will green up again upon return of moisture.
  • Should not be used in a shady site, requires full sun for most of the day.
  • Withstands wear better than most grasses.

Midlawn Bermuda Maintenance

Water Needs

Apply 1/2 to 1 inch of water as a deep soaking every 5 to 7 days to encourage a deep, healthy root system during dry of hot periods. Avoid frequent, shallow watering that results in shallow roots, permitting weed germination and growth.

Mowing & Thatching

Mow to a height of 1/2 to 1 inch for a high quality turf. Mow regularly with a sharp reel or rotary mower, allowing the clippings from frequent mowing to remain on the lawn. Never remove more than 1/3 of the shoot growth at one mowing. Bermudagrass can develop thatch at higher nitrogen levels and may require vertical cutting. If this is necessary, be sure to fertilize and water well after vertical cutting.

Soil & Fertilization Needs

Adapted to a variety of soils, tolerates alkaline and slightly acidic soils and also has good salt tolerance. Use a complete fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium in spring and fall. Apply nitrogen at 2 to 4 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. annually. You may also apply 1/2 to 1 lb of nitrogen at monthly intervals during the growing season.
