Bermuda Lawn Calendar – May – Top Tips (S5E7)

The lawn is now about to really start growing! Some may have started pushing their lawns back in March and April since we had a relatively mild winter and early warm-up. I chose to wait a bit and let the lawn enjoy it’s winter dormancy before pushing for some green.

That’s what is cool about DIY lawns. You get to do what you want, huh? Don’t forget to visit the Bermuda Lawn Calendar for some great guidance and suggestions for your Bermuda grass lawn.

What can I do in May?

There are several things you can do in May. I decided to go ahead and do my first aeration and apply a whole lot of soil amendments. I had to clean out the garage and make some room for other stuff, of course. 😀

The best thing you can do in the month of May according to our Bermuda Lawn Calendar include:

  • Start mowing the lawn more regular, even if it doesn’t look like it needs it
  • Spot spray or pull up any weeds that may have popped up
  • If you haven’t scalped then scalp your yard as low as possible to remove the dormant/dead Bermuda stalks
  • Apply your first Nitrogen rich fertilizer
  • Apply your 2nd application of Pre-Emergent for the year. ✨
  • Apply a preventative insecticide if you did not in April
  • Apply a preventative fungicide
  • Feed the soil
  • Broadcast spray for weeds only if you have massive weed infestation

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