How long does it take to "train" bermuda to grow horizontal
So I've seen a lot of folks on here talking about "training" bermuda to grow horizontally to help thicken it up and get rid of the brown stalks you see when mowed. My new bermuda was seeded in June 1st and is doing very well. It did however get too high while I was out of town at the end of June... So once I cut it, it was mostly brown stalks.... I've been cutting it every 2-3 days since trying to help it fill in, I'm cutting at the lowest setting on my rotary, which is probably an inch or so... Some spots that didn't establish as quickly are nice and green after each mowing but many areas I'm cutting nearly all the green off... It's not unhealthy, that's for sure- it grows new green in 2 days, and if left unkept could probably grow 3 inch a week.
Should I just raise the mowing height and get a better start with my first mowing next year or keep at it to get it to fill in. Been doing this 3-4 weeks and haven't noticed much different
