Question:"The area on which we intend to build a green is already well sodded with Bermuda grass. This grass is used exclusively in this section for sodding greens. Must we dig up this old grass and replant or can we keep mowing it down close until the tender shoots start to grow?"
Source of Question:Texas
Answer/Response:"If the area you intend to use for turf is now well covered with Bermuda grass, keep it mowed closely and new shoots should soon thickin the turf so that it will be satisfactory for putting green purposes. The process can be hastened by applying sulfate of ammonia at the rate of 5 to 10 pounds to 1,000 square feet. Apply when the grass is dry and water it in. After mowing it would be well to rake the ground severely with a garden rake or topdress liberally with fresh soil. If necessary to thicken the sod, the surface can be leveled and Bermuda grass seed sown. The turf should then be kept well watered for a time."
