New Sahara Bermuda Planting

OPTIMUM GERMINATION AND ESTABLISHMENT OF SEEDLINGS WILL RESULT IF BERMUDAGRASS IS PLANTED AFTER SOIL TEMPERATURES STABILIZE AT OR ABOVE 65°F (FROM APRIL TO JULY IN MOST AREAS).

1. Establish a rough grade by tilling soil as deeply as possible.

2. Test the soil and follow recommendations. Apply lime to raise pH to at least 6.0.

3. Finish working up the seedbed and establish final grade to provide surface drainage.

4. Compact soil surface by rolling and settle surface by irrigating.

5. Seed at a rate of 2-3 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Broadcast half the seed in one direction and the remainder at a right angle to the first.

6. Rake lightly or top-dress to cover and stabilize the newly planted seed. Maximum planting depth is 1/8 inch.

7. Keep soil moist until seedlings are well rooted. Reduce irrigation frequency and increase irrigation volume. Deep water percolation contributes to deeper, hardier roots.

Using Sahara Bermuda Seeds For Turf Renovation & Repair

1. Apply a non-selective broad spectrum herbicide at the recommended label rate to kill existing vegetation.

2. Test the soil and follow recommendations. Apply lime to raise pH to at least 6.0.

3. Work soil surface extensively by aerating or vigorously raking 10 days after herbicide application.

4. Broadcast Sahara Bermudagrass seed at a rate of 1-2 pounds per 1,000 square feet in two or more directions using a spreader.

5. Rake lightly or top-dress to cover and stabilize the newly planted seed. Maximum planting depth is 1/8 inch.

6. Keep the soil moist until seedlings are well rooted.

Sahara Bermuda Care & Maintenance

Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer in spring and fall. Lime yearly where acid soils are a problem. When a green lawn is wanted year around, overseed in the fall with annual or perennial ryegrass. Bermudagrass forms a very tight, wear-resistant turf.
