Bermuda sod is grown in the Southern part of the U.S. It flourishes in warm temperatures and sunlight. It doesn’t do well in the shade, and grows sparsely in these areas. It is a green color during the summer, turning a brownish shade during the winter. Bermuda grass is said to have come to the United States from Africa. Some say it was brought over as early as the 1500’s, while others say it was here by 1751. Bermuda sod is made of perennial grass, which means that it survives for at least three seasons. It goes dormant for the winter months or when the temperature drops consistently below 60 degrees. The grass should be winterized sometime in September to make sure it survives throughout its dormancy. During the winter, Bermuda grass is extremely easy to maintain. Bermuda sod comes out of its dormancy sometime in April. This is when it begins to grow very rapidly, reaching its peak in early summer. Early summer is the best time to aerate your Bermuda sod. Aeration is the process of poking many holes in the soil to bring oxygen into it. This not only promotes growth but guarantees a beautiful looking lawn. Not only does Bermuda sod rely heavily on sunlight, but it also thrives on fertilizer. There are many different types of fertilizer you can buy for your sod, but you might want to test the soil before you purchase any. You can also lime your soil. Liming is the process of adding lime to your soil to raise the pH if it is too acidic. Bermuda sod is extremely dense and durable. Its density makes it very difficult for weeds to grow among it. Its characteristics have made it very popular for use on golf courses and other athletic fields. Bermuda grass is resistant to a lot of traffic, except in the winter. When Bermuda grass is in its dormancy stage, high traffic should be avoided. In the same sense, Bermuda sod can be mowed so it is very short, unless it is not in its rapid growth stage. Mowing it too short during this time can cause the grass to have a brown tone and also makes it easier for weeds to poke up through the sod.
