Yeah, I think I have 3 different types of grass maybe 4 throughout my yard. I am not sure what the previous owners were thinking about the front yard, but it is half Bermuda, half centipede. I like the look of a good Bermuda lawn, so I am going to go with that. I read that if you feed it right it will take over a centipede lawn. I also have some St. Aug and I killed some Bihaia grass. I did put down a preM late Feb, since it started warming up then. I plan to aerate end of may and put down another app of preM. I have been using a back pack sprayer with prodiamine65, but it really is too much for my full lawn, which is around 17000 sqft.
These were taken about a month or so ago after I did my first mow and scalp. I have since cut down the Bradford pear, it was diseased. You can see the dormant Bermuda and the greener Centipede from my cut. This front section is around 4100sqft
I have a few bare spots in my lawn, I thought about re seeding after I aerate, but is that necessary? I have been reading that if I feed Bermuda it will fill in those spots. I plan on feeding this area (1) 1.5lbs of nitrogen every month.
Here is an overview of my total lawn and my scribbling. The back yard I am not too worried about, it is centipede with some pine trees and gumball trees in the very back, so sun is lacking. I think with just a preM one to two ferts a year, I should be good. To the right of the driveway, is the St. Aug/Centipede/Bermuda mix, I think I will just let the Centipede take over since that is what is in the neighbors lawn.
This is probably more than what you asked. I feel that for the first time, I have a plan to tackle the front yard.
