Now that fall has officially arrived in Atlanta, Georgia, your Bermuda turf is beginning its transition into dormancy. Dormancy is a natural, reoccurring cycle taking place when adverse conditions such as low temperatures and inadequate light and water. For warm-season grasses such a Bermuda, this natural process happens every fall. This is a very important time for the turf roots. While this “brown” period of dormancy may not be aesthetically appealing, remember it is only temporary but absolutely vital! You will be rewarded next spring with a healthy and vigorous lawn.
