ASK THE EXPERTS

Q - My Bermuda grass lawn has several brown patches. If I sow seed now, will it create a nice green lawn next year?

A - Bermuda is a warm-season grass that starts to go dormant in September, according to MCCE Master Gardener Emeritus Olin Miller. Seeding now would not allow time for it to germinate and establish roots, and you would have to resow next year. Bermuda grass can be seeded when nighttime temperatures are 60 degrees F and higher, usually May through August in the Phoenix area.
