I don't live in Texas but found a very complete article on Bermuda grass. It tends to die if it's too cold. Since there is such weird weather, I guess you will just have to see. You can buy a little soil test kit at a hardware store if you want to amend the soil since you're starting out new. Have fun! http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/a...s/Bermuda.html]
I know in California, it's used to provide an easy, pretty grass but then usually dies off.

All lawns are going to have a mix of certain percentages of different grass variety. Being that you are in Texas, you are going to see more drought resistant grass in lawns.

Your best option to do is call a local Weed & Feed place and have them do an assessment on what grass varieties you have, along with the soil.

You do not have to use them. But it gives you an idea of what you have, then decide if you need them for the first year to help make the lawn look better.

I had to go with a local place, because I could not get the stupid Wild Violet out of my lawn, no matter how hard that we tried.

It's green. And the problem is?

Welcome to DIY Chatroom

I used to live there. It's either Bermuda, or Rye. It's been so long I don't remember which is which. If it gets brown when it gets cold, I believe that will be your Bermuda. The Rye tends to stay greener longer......I think.

Most people there run St Augustine.....or weeds
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
