"Well, just read of a new way to remove Bermuda.  Probably not useful for a yard.  But for a narrow strip like a garden bed . . .  Based upon my observations of the dense mat of Bermuda I can see this working.  But if Bermuda…"

removing bermuda grass

Hi all,I am aware of the various non-Roundup ways to (attempt to) get rid of bermuda grass.  I recently went to a class at the Desert Botanical Garden "After the Lawn is Gone."  The instructor briefly touched upon these ways, but in his opinion, the only way to really eradicate it is with glyphosate/Roundup.   His protocol is to water the lawn well for a week now to get it green and long, then apply the Roundup, wait a few days, water again for another few days and then do another application.…See More
