Summary of the “How to Make Bermuda Grass Thicker” Video
– – How to make Bermuda grass thicker. My comments probably apply to all Gulf Coast Bermuda grass varieties, whether we’re talking about Common Bermuda grass, or the Tifway 419, or TexTurf 10, which are the Bermuda grasses that we carry.
We don’t carry Common Bermuda grass, and the reason we don’t is because that it’s not very thick and dense and it’s kind of coarse and stringy, it’s just not as nice to look at, especially for a residential application.
Frequent Mowing Makes Bermuda Grass Thicker
So the more frequently you mow any grass, and you cut it off, you’re promoting the lateral growth. The horizontal growth is what you’re promoting when you do that as opposed to the upward growth every time you mow. So if you mow more frequently and you follow those mowings up with water and increase your fertilizer a little bit, those are all things that you can do to make any grass thicken up more.
Short Grass Needs Extra Water to Make Bermuda Grass Thicker
Especially Bermuda grass, it’s very receptive to doing that. That’s the reason Bermuda grass looks like a carpet on a golf course — they’re mowing every day, or every other day. You hear about putting greens, they’re mowing twice a day, so they’re cutting just a little bit off every time, but that promotes that outward growth.
They’re following it up with water and that makes a grass nice and thick and makes it look more like “carpet” which is how people describe grass when they get it to that point. It takes a lot of inputs and a lot of time and effort though, to make grass look like that, so be aware.
