We moved into a bank owned home in August; needless to say the yard was a disaster after sitting for 20 months. Bermuda grass outside the curbing in all the flower beds higher and thicker than where it was suppose to be. We hate it (it quickly forms runners that loop and catch your foot) and want a different kind of grass for our small grass area. i have spent more hours than i can count digging and grubbing it out of the beds even tired torching it but still haven't got it all. Is there a way to kill it all with out toxic chemicals. From my reading Bermuda grass is a noxious weed in 48 states. Is there a grass that grows well and stays green in the heat other than this nasty stuff?
