Hello nature lover.....!

Winter Overseeding With a Ryegrass: Winter overseeding of dormant bermudagrass may be done for year round green color. Overseeding is not generally recommended on immature turf (less than 6 to 8 months of age or first fall after planting). The safest practice would be to wait until second year (fall / winter) after your bermuda is established. Late season plantings and newly established bermudagrass may also be damaged by the vertical cutting and scalping procedures, leaving it unable to compete with the overseeded species during the spring transition. Ryegrasses are the primary overseeding species.

If you want to plant ryegrass for a winter lawn, then you should just mow the grass down as short as possible, ? or under preferably. Do Not rip into it with a de-thatcher or other device, no matter what think you see others doing around the neighborhood. De-thatching of bermuda is best done early to mid-summer, not in the fall. Because in early to mid-summer, the bermuda has enough good growing season left to recover and re-grow after de-thatching.

  • Spread your ryegrass seed - PERENNIAL Ryegrass makes for a nicer lawn, though some use the cheaper and wider bladed annual ryegrass – read the label to determine which you have.
  • Plant 8 to 10 pounds per 1,000 square feet area – DO NOT plant any heavier as this can cause disease problems with the ryegrass seedlings, and can lead to more problems next spring getting rid of the ryegrass to allow the bermuda to come back.
  • Add about 1/2 inch layer of any type mulch on top of the seeds – This helps hold moisture for better germination, and to reduce pigeons / birds eating the seeds.
  • Water 3-4 times a day for 5-10 minutes each time, for the first 3-4 weeks to get the lawn germinated and established. Then you need to reduce the frequency of watering, while increasing the length of time watered to get deeper watering for deeper, stronger roots. In mid-winter, you are aiming for watering once every 3-5 days for total about 20 minutes per day.
