If you live in the south, you see Bermudagrass on many lawns. It spreads by creepers and produces a nice, thick lawn. But this common lawn grass can become an invasive weed in gardens and lawns with other grass types.
What is Bermudagrass?
Bermudagrass is a popular turf grass in the south. It tolerates heat and drought, but it can't stand the cold. When temperatures drop below 50 degrees, it starts to turn brown. In gardens and other kinds of lawns, bermudagrass is an aggressive weed that can quickly dominate a given area.
Bermudagrass in Other Types of Lawns To keep Bermudagrass out of your non-Bermudagrass lawn, mow your grass higher than 11/2 inches. Water your grass regularly and spot-treat any patches of Bermudagrass with Roundup® Ready-To-Use Weed & Grass Killer III in the Pump 'N Go® Sprayer. You'll have to reseed, of course. For more information, read How and where do I apply Roundup® brand products? Also, it's a good idea to fertilize your lawn in the fall to help your grass compete in the spring.
