How to treat Bermuda grass.

slowpoke_gardenerApril 9, 2014

First you pile up two pickup loads of dried Pampas grass, toss in a match and watch it burn. Then, in a couple of weeks the Bermuda grass under the pile will be healthy and coming up early so you can get an early start on mowing it and digging it out of your flower beds and garden.

yep, fire will do it every time. It will surely take over you whole garden now.

Larry, I hope you didn't make that bermuda grass too mad or it may be planning some sort of horrible retribution.

Ours is greening up in the yard. I've been digging it out where it is trying to creep under the garden fence and grow into beds and pathways for about 3 weeks, so it greened up earlier in there where it isn't wanted.

with love and affection? or putting old carpeting over it? cardboard? Geo. L. says he has a strain of pumpkin that will grow right over it.
