Bermuda and St. Augustine Grass

There are a few types of grass in Texas, the most common being Bermuda and  St. Augustine. Each of these warm season grasses require slightly different treatment patterns as well as different care. It is important to understand which type of growing conditions you have in your area so that you can select the right type of grass for your landscape. It is also important to understand which grass you have so you can care for it correctly.  
Raleigh-St-Augustine.jpg St. Augustine Grass: 
St. Augustine is a dark green grass with broad, flat blades. It spreads by above ground stolons, commonly known as "runners", and forms a dense layer. This grass is common in Texas and offers a variety of benefits to home owners especially in areas with partial and full shade. It does not produce any rhizomes and the stolons can grow to be several feet long and root at the nodes. St. Augustine is a warm season grass and it is mainly found in the southern United States.
Watering Instructions for St. Augustine:
When watering your St. Augustine grass be sure to set sprayer zones for 30 minutes, and rotor zones for 45 minutes. These settings should yield about ½ inch to ¾ on a inch of water, per watering cycle, which is ideal for St. Augustine. For an already well maintained lawn two to three times per week is ideal. During the hot summer months you should never go more than 3 days without watering your St. Augustine Grass. Weakened lawns need even more water than that.

Common-Bermuda.jpg
The runners seen in Bermuda grass are the most commonly recognized feature of Bermuda grass. Bermuda is an invasive grass and for that it is great for repairing bare and thin spots. Bermuda is one of the very few grasses that self repairs. Bermuda grass is a perennial grass, it has a very rich green tone, it can grow well hot temperatures and it is extremely drought resistant. Bermuda grass reproduces by seeds or stems and can go dormant within a week of cooler temperatures. Bermuda grass is not shade tolerant whatsoever and therefore should only be planted in sunny areas.
Watering Instructions for Bermuda:
When watering your Bermuda grass be sure to set sprayer zones for 35 minutes, and rotor zones for 50 minutes and this should produce about a ¾  inch to 1 inch of water per watering. A sprinkler system with proper pressure and reach should be able to get the job done in the time listed above.  For an already well maintained lawn three times a weeks should do the job properly. During the hot summer months you should never go more than 2 days without watering your Bermuda Grass. Weakened lawns need even more water than that.  Hand watering weak spots may be called for if your area has watering restrictions.

What is lawn Dormancy?

What is lawn dormancy?
Often times grass looks like its dead or dying at different times of year but in actual fact it is going dormant. Lawn dormancy happens when grass is lacking the essential conditions necessary for active growth so it compensates by conserving energy instead. Due to this, the grass starts to turn brown and it stops growing and thus gives off the appearance of dying or thinning out. In actual fact, the grass is just shutting down temporarily to sustain its survival. Cool season grasses (otherwise known as northern grasses) such as Kentucky bluegrass, perennial rye grass or fescue typically go dormant during the hot and dry conditions of summer. This is why many really thick and green lawns in the spring can suddenly turn brown in the early summertime. The lawn is not dying, it is just reacting to a change from the cool, moist conditions of spring to the hot, dry conditions of summer.
Can lawn dormancy be prevented?
For those who like to maintain a thick, healthy, and dark green looking lawn all season long, lawn dormancy can be prevented. The way to prevent dormancy is to maintain 2 deep watering's per week every single week going into and during summer. To ensure deep watering, we suggest watering for 1 hour each time in all ears of the lawn. If your lawn is already dormant the way to pull it out of dormancy is to water a little extra i the beginning until the lawn greens up (perhaps 3 times per week for 1 hour).
Is dormancy bad for the grass?
For those who do not have the time to water (or wish to follow a watering budget) letting the lawn go dormant is not a bad thing so long as you continue to fertilize the lawn. When the lawn is dormant it is  in a survival mode. When the hot dry conditions gradually turn to cool moist conditions (typically in the fall) the lawn will undergo a full recovery. The key of course, is to maintain a consistent fertility program to ensure the lawn has the essential nutrients it needs to recover.
