Bermuda Lawn Calendar – January (S5E1)

Typically with a bermuda grass lawn there isn’t much to do in January. Yes, I mentioned bermuda grass and January in the same sentence! Unless you’re in the deep South and having a mild Winter then your bermuda grass lawn is probably brown. That brown color is called dormancy. Yep, bermuda grass doesn’t green up unless soil temperatures are 65 or higher. Don’t forget to visit the Bermuda Lawn Calendar.

What can I do in January?

I’m so glad that you asked. You definitely don’t what to fertilizer the lawn or scalp the turf. I’m often asked when the best time to scalp is. With temps down in the 20s, now is not the time. Wait a couple more months when the lawn starts to green and warmer temps come.

The best thing you can do in the month of January is clean up the lawn and feed the soil. In this video I get down a light coating of BioChar DG by The Andersons.

BioChar DG Details:

  • Improves soil health with particles designed to attract nutrients, beneficial bacteria, microbes, and water, making all of these more available for plants
  • Builds rich, carbon-heavy soil that requires less fertilizer for plant growth
  • Features DG Technology, which allows particles to disperse with water, moving immediately into the soil
  • Easy-to-apply spherical, uniform, low-dust formulation
  • Ideal for seeding and composting applications on lawns, gardens, flower beds, potted plants, etc.
  • BioChar lasts in the soil for years, helping build the soil profile over time.
  • Environmentally friendly, OMRI listed. User friendly; can be blended with fertilizers, alongside any fertilizer program, or used alone

Give this stuff a try! I recommend applying a good soil conditioner at least once a month.
