Bermuda grass is green-gray in color, and its blades are short with long rough edges. Its deep roots make it incredibly resistant to drought, weeds and high traffic, making it a popular choice for golf courses and sports fields. However, its highly invasive nature, make it a tough sell for homeowners. Some call it “the devil’s grass” as it often sets up shop in nearby gardens and flowerbeds.
Bermuda grass grows rapidly in all types of soil, producing seeds, runners and rhizomes. However, like many types of Florida grass, it is sensitive to cold temperatures, pests and shade. Regular maintenance and weekly watering help maintain appearance.
