Suggested Bermuda Grass To Overseed Tifway 419 Bermuda Grass

Overseeding a Tifway 419 Bermuda Grass turf -- Bermuda Grass varieties Yukon, Princess 77 and Riviera bermudagrass will match the closest to a Tifway 419 Bermuda grass lawn in color, texture and density - all of the physical appearance items the eye notices with individual inspection of varieties. Princess 77 Bermuda is an excellent variety for warmer areas of the Bermudagrass planting zone.

The new LaPrima-XD Bermuda Grass Seed Blend is also a good choice for use in all Bermuda zones as a seeded replacement of similar quality or even an addition added to improve the stand of existing Tifway 419 Bermuda lawns.

In Side by side plots, you can see subtle differences between all of these varieties. But when MIXED into the existing Tifway 419 lawn you will see only very minor differences, and you would have a hard time naming which is which the seeded variety, versus the hybrid sprigged Tifway variety. If trying to repair and replace damaged, thinned or bare sections in a Tifway Bermuda 419 lawn... your best option is to slit seed the whole area with the seeded variety (both good and damaged areas).

If no slit seeder is available you can do a heavy aeration (spike or core plugger) and then overseed with your Bermuda seeds. The seeds should be raked and watered into the lawn / soil so as to get best soil coverage to ensure germination. By seeding the whole area with the slightly different shade of seeded bermuda you trick the eye with a optical illusion to think that the lawn is suppose to look that way. Then you will not notice the differences as easily if you had just planted in the bare / damaged areas.

Additionally, the newer varieties & Blends, Such as LaPrima-XD Bermuda, La Paloma have both shown early results similar to this same turf quality level as the varieties listed above.

READ MORE ON OVERSEEDING EXISTING GRASSES.

Planting together or over-planting varieties such as Yukon into worn, thinned Tifway 419 - you will be hard pressed to tell the plants apart.

It is better to overplant the entire area, not just the bare spot - If you just replant the bare spot with Princess or with Yukon, then YES you will see the patch as different, due to subtle appearance differences AND mostly since the bare area will be new immature turf and the adjoining areas will be older, more thatched up turf plants

Eventually the surrounding grass will creep in and the bare area new grass will creep out and the two will blend better. Best results are to mow down, verticut or dethatch the whole turf site, and then overseed with Yukon, Rivera or Princess the entire turf area, including the bare and grassed areas. This will grow then as blended turf and you will not see patchiness that you will if you just re-seeding the empty spot only.
