I thought I had finally moved away from Bermuda grass (lawns in
Tucson and Phoenix make it nearly impossible to do in the city) when I
moved to our own 10 acres of Arizona. But I've discovered 3 small
patches of it along our driveway. In fact, some of it is IN the
In the past, I've gotten rid of it by digging out what I could
then planting pumpkins which shaded the rest of it out. When I told our
Master Gardener Class about this, our county agent insisted that I must
not have had Bermuda grass because "it's been proven that only
glycophosphate will kill Bermuda grass". So please don't suggest I ask
the County Agent--I already know his answer.
I'm unwilling to use Roundup on my property but I'm also
unwilling to tolerate this terrible weed. I've dug up what is in (and
very close to) the drive way and piled a "hay stack" of less noxious
weeds on top of what is a few feet away from the drive with the plan of
leaving the hay stack in place indefinately. But I anticipate having
trouble in the drive.
By the way, I had originally thought Bermuda would grow only
where it got irrigation here in this part of high desert, but this is in
a broad dry wash that gets flooded in the monsoons and is still moist
after nearly two months of no measurable rain.
