RE: How to get rid of bermuda grass (Follow-Up #24)

posted by: thferret on 05.30.2010 at 02:22 pm in Weeds Forum

I started getting a patch of bermuda in my lawn about 4 years ago. Over the past 2 years I sprayed with roundup in an attempt to kill everything in the entire area. Last year i tilled it up and planted Scott's Heat Tolerant Blue, as well as overseeding the entire yard.
This spring the bermuda is back full force. I really think tilling was the wrong thing to do.
Tru-Green told me the only way to get rid of it was to kill EVERYTHING. That there was no herbicide that targeted bermuda. But then I looked online this week and found this forum and have ordered ornamec. I also found that Bayer makes a product that targets it also. But nothing is available at any of our local home stores.
Btw, I cancelled TruGreen the year before last.
I will post after trying the ornamec for a few months and let you know how it turns out.
