What Is Bermudagrass and How Do I Control It?

Bermudagrass is a popular turfgrass found in the southern United States. Though it's known for its luscious profile, it's also an aggressive species that can quickly dominate an area. Bermudagrass, why must you be so deceiving?

Kick Some Grass: 3 Ways to Stop It


1. Don't over-mow

If bermudagrass is found in your non-bermudagrass yard, you'll want to keep your lawn pretty tall — around 3–4". (Bermudagrass likes to stay on the down low.)


2. Treat and replant

Treat patches of bermudagrass with Roundup® Ready-To-Use Weed & Grass Killer III. Then, replant those spots after three days.


3. Feed in the fall

During the fall, feed your grass to help it compete in the spring. When you keep your lawn in shape, it's better at defending itself from bermudagrass.

Guard the Garden

Bermudagrass likes gardens a lot. It sees the fertile space as an open invitation to invade. Spot treat it with Roundup® Ready-To-Use Weed & Grass Killer III with Sure Shot® Wand.
