Lawn Rehab with Bermuda: a few questions
My front yard is currently a mix of a few bermuda sprigs, fescue, and chickweed. I also have a low spot in the middle of the yard that turns into a swampy mess whenever it rains.
The back yard, which gets more shade, has decent fescue coverage. However, my neighbor has bermuda which has been slowly creeping into my yard.
What I'm wanting to do is start over with Yukon bermuda. My plan is as follows:
1. Scalp the yard & bag the clippings.
2. Hit everything with RoundUp.
3. Reapply RoundUp in a week.
4. Rototill the front yard.
5. Fix the low spot.
6. Put down starter fertilizer.
7. Seed, water, & wait.
Does this plan make sense? Are there any hurdles that I need to be aware of?
