Bermuda Grass Seed For Cooler Locations
Such as Areas In The Transition Zone

Bermuda Grass Planting Map For Improved VaritiesBermuda grass seed varieties 'Yukon' and 'Riviera' have expanded the bermuda grass adaptation area to include parts of the transition zone and other cooler areas of the USA.

There are slight differences between the Yukon and Riviera varieties, but both will do well in Cooler Transition / Northern areas such as Tennessee to Virginia for performance on sports fields, lawns, commercial lawns, golf courses... wherever you choose to plant bermuda grass. Yukon and Riviera are both known for winter survival and cold hardiness.

  • Yukon Bermuda Grass is denser for good wear tolerance, and will green up 2-3 weeks earlier in Spring and maintain green about 2 weeks longer into Fall. Yukon is somewhat better for resistance to Spring Dead Spot disease. Yukon has reported in trials to repair "divot" areas faster than many other vegetative and seeded varieties.
  • Riviera Bermuda Grass is slightly more aggressive and has a slightly faster fill-in once established. Riviera also has decent resistance to Spring Dead Spot - just not as high resistance as Yukon.

Both varieties will germinate in the same time frame and temperature conditions when planted in Spring or early summer. The seed will not germinate until soil temperatures are over 65 degrees F, so you should plan the planting schedule around this. You may mix the varieties if you wish to gain some of both characteristics if desired.

Replacing a Cool Season Lawn With Bermuda Grass

Many people have decided to overseed their existing, higher maintenance cool season lawns with one of these cold tolerant Bermuda Grass varieties. To overseed an existing lawn with bermuda grass seed follow these instructions:

Kill or seriously stunt back the existing grass to give the new seedlings the best chance and least competition. Mow to about 1/2 inch height before seeding. This will slow the growth of the existing cool season grasses so that the new bermuda seedlings have a good 4-6 weeks to establish before the cool season grasses start to re-grow and shade the bermuda seedlings.

The best planting method is to slit seed the bermuda seed into the cool season sod, planting very shallow OR broadcast the seed and drag a rake over the area to help stir the seed down to soil line. The growth regulator also helps to slow the growth of the cool season grasses, so they don't need much mowing during the grow-in period. This will help reduce damage to the seedlings while they get established. Follow the usual directions on time of planting (above 65 degree soil temp / no more frost or freeze. In most Northern / Transition areas best planting time toward the first of June.
