Bermuda grass is a warm season grass that is known for its heat and drought tolerance, thriving in full sunlight and warmer weather. Known for its bright green color, it’s a popular choice for southern parts of the United States.
About Bermuda Grass Seed
Bermudagrass is known as a hardy, fast-growing, and attractive turf that recovers well from damage. It could be the right choice for your residential or commercial lawn, with its dense growth and tolerance of heavy traffic.
Where can I plant Bermuda Grass Seed?
Bermudagrass thrives in soil with a balanced pH level and adequate drainage. If this describes your property, and you live in a warm, humid area like the southeastern United States, this popular turfgrass could be a perfect match for your lawn.
Bermuda grass can adapt to other soil types and can survive some drought conditions, but does require regular watering, fertilization, and mowing to maintain its good looks.
How long does it take to grow Bermuda Grass from seed?
If you have prepared the area you wish to seed and experience ideal weather conditions during the growing season, a basic plot of Bermudagrass turf can be established from grass seed within about six weeks.
For livestock grazing, you’d want to let the grass mature a bit more. Let Bermudagrass grown from seed grow for eight to ten weeks before using for grazing purposes.

What equipment do you need to plant Bermuda Grass Seed?
Most importantly, a pro-grade spreader can help you apply grass seed evenly and consistently across the entire cultivated area you wish to seed. Push-cart-style wheeled spreaders are available in several different sizes and capacities. If you have the space and need to seed a medium- to large-sized parcel of land, a two-wheeled spreader is a great tool to have on hand.
Smaller portable spreaders that are carried in hand are also available. These hand-held options can be useful in areas including uneven terrain where a wheeled spreader may be difficult to use.
Hand-held options include crank-driven spreaders with some mechanical assistance and simple shakers that one can use to spread at their feet as they walk over any type of terrain.
Finally, some types of grass seed have been chemically treated and should be handled with chemical-resistant gloves and other appropriate PPE. Any time you may be handling treated seed, check the product label for PPE recommendations. In most cases long sleeves and pants, closed-toe shoes, socks, and chemical-resistant gloves are recommended.
