Winter Lawn Transition
Now that it has warmed up, winter rye grass lawns are l ooking stressed. This is a natural process as the winter grass wilts and the underlying warm season Bermuda grass starts to wake up.
AME Landscape Companies has already begun transitioning your lawn by:
• Lowering our mowing height gradually so heat and sun can reach the underlying warm season Bermuda turf.
• Reducing water so that the winter grass is discouraged but ensuring enough water to encourage Bermuda.
• Using a fertilizer that is high in ammonium sulfate. This will weaken the ryegrass even further, but will supply the Bermuda with the nutrients it needs to come out of dormancy more quickly.
• Raking all of the remaining ryegrass so it will not shade the Bermuda.
