What Causes Thinning Bermuda Grass?

A video thumbnail, Ryan Wall of Absolute Green Landscaping speaking. Text on the thumbnail: What causes Thinning Bermuda grass?

One common question that we get asked is “why is the grass thinning in certain areas of the yard?”

This is usually related to bermuda grass because bermuda grass needs sunlight all day long. The shaded sections of the yard are going to be the most common for thinning out. For example, on the side of the house or under a tree; it just doesn’t get the full eight hours of sunlight that it needs per day. If bermuda grass sees a shadow all day long it’s going to start thinning out so the trick is trimming your trees or changing your grass type to something that’s more shade tolerant. For example, some varieties of zoysia only need about four hours of sunlight whereas the regular bermuda needs at least eight.
