Bermuda grass a mess in winter Sign In/Join 
posted
My dormant bermuda grass is a nightmare in winter. Dog tracks in thousands of shedded pieces and it ends up all over the house. I can't walk out in my yard without getting it all over my pants and shoes. Help! Anyone know how to control this issue? I feel like taking my vacuum cleaner to the yard!

Thanks!

Kill the Bermuda & plant something different.
Just kidding, sort of!
I have Bermuda also and have the same issues as well as LOTS of other issues with it...like it creeping into all my flower beds!
I hate it and if we didn't have such a large yard, I'd find a way to replace it.
I've spot sprayed it with roundup & that won't even kill it, it just comes right back in a couple of weeks!

I do have one serious suggestion...didn't think of it before.
I keep a soft, long brush at each door so shoes can be brushed off before coming into the house. You could do the same with doggie feet!
