Might be a dumb question but I'll ask anyway. Its about time to fertilize my Bermuda grass here in NC, but I was wondering with the excessive heat we get this time of year if it would be an issue? The lawn gets enough water. Go ahead and feed?
Bermuda needs regular feeding. I sought to give my bermuda lawn in N California one pound of nitrogen (first number of the three number NPK ratio on a bag of fertilizer shows how much nitrogen is in the sack) per 1,000sf per month during the growing season. That may be overkill but was the formula taught at the time. I used fast acting, not timed release turf food and every other month just got nitrogen.
Assuming you are sure you can keep up with watering (and mowing in the heat) you should be alright feeding the turf. If you want to play it safe, you might actually cut back on the nitrogen a bit. Just be sure to water it in thoroughly after application when it is hot like this. You might also consider putting half the amount you normally would on now and seeing how it goes. Repeat in two weeks.
