Bermudagrass Suppression

This is a tough intruder when it is not the grass you want.  


Invasive Bermudagrass

Common Bermudagrass, also known as wiregrass, is a resilient warm-season, perennial turfgrass that spreads through rhizomes and stolons. It thrives in heat and drought conditions but tends to struggle in shadier areas. Its adaptability makes it invasive in cool-season lawns within our region, particularly thriving in the sun-drenched areas of the lawn. Our transitional climate often leads to lawns with a mix of warm and cool-season grasses. Moreover, Bermudagrass seeds can spread via contaminated lawn equipment, wind, and animals, which also makes it difficult to keep out of your cool season lawn. Eradicating this grass is nearly impossible once it takes root, presenting a significant challenge for cool-season lawns. Bermudagrass becomes particularly aggressive when cool-season grasses are under stress, seizing the opportunity to outcompete them for nutrients and water during their most vulnerable months.
