bermuda seed thoughts
Not sure if this will work or not, but thought I might as well give it a shot. I have a small field that is full of weeds next to my property that I would like to eventually have filled in with Bermuda. Of course I will not care for it like I do my main lawn, but I want it to look decent and not be so weedy.
I decided to do a test. I know the proper steps to take when seeding a lawn. I have established over .5 an acre from seed. What I did in the adjacent weeded property is throwing down leftover seed and see if mother nature will do the work in getting the seed to grow. Seeded 2 days ago and going to get some decent rain today and tomorrow. Only steps I took were mowing down weeds as low as I can go and then throwing the seed down with starter fertilizer. My hope is that mother nature can do the rest of it and in the years to come let the Bermuda take over the field. I keep the area cut pretty low anyway, so if it does grow, I will not worry about the weed battle too much.
Thoughts, do you think I will have any results, or will the seed just rot from the rain today and tomorrow and then no moisture the next few days?
