Warm Season Grass Scalping

After the last risk of hard frost has passed, usually the middle of March, give your Bermuda lawn an initial grass scalping, cutting the grass to about 1″. This will encourage your lawn to “green-up”. To help reduce thatch build-up, you need to bag and remove the clippings after grass scalping. Grass scalping or “lawn scalping” is a laborious task, and you might want to gradually bring the lawn down over a two or three week period instead of all at once. When you have completed the lawn scalping, you need to raise the mower one notch and begin your regular mowing at that height. King Green does recommend Warm Season Aeration of Bermuda grass in late spring to early summer. Please contact your King Green representative if you want this service or have questions about Bermuda lawns.
