Hancock's Common Bermuda Grass Seed - Coated & Hulled
Back

Hancock's Coated and Hulled Common Bermuda Grass Seed makes an excellent low-maintenance, drought-resistant lawn or pasture grass. Common Bermuda Grass is a crawling turf, with runners providing great traffic tolerance, wear-resistance and fine leaf texture with medium green color.

Product Information

  • Application or Use: Lawn, Pasture, Livestock Grazing, Cattle Forage, Erosion Control, Cover Crop, Ground Cover
  • Germination Time: 5 - 12 days, under optimal conditions
  • Growing Locations: Warm Season & Transition Zone
  • Height: Lawn – 1 - 3 inches or Pasture – 8 - 12 inches
  • Sunlight Requirements: 8+ hours, full sun for best results
  • Advantages: Extreme drought and traffic tolerance with moderate tolerance to soils with poor nutrient.
  • When to Plant: Recommended planting time is spring and summer when nighttime temperatures are consistently 65+ degrees and 3 months prior to first frost.


Hancock's Coated and Hulled Common Bermuda Grass grows well in very sandy and poor soil types, where other grasses have trouble. Hancock's Common Bermuda Grass is commonly used for lawn, pasture, turf, erosion control, parks, and landscaping applications across the country.

This blend is both hulled and coated. Coated seed contains approximately 50% inert material per pound of seed. Seed coating promotes germination by retaining moisture around the seed, deterring birds from consuming the seed, and makes it easier to see after the seed has been spread.

HSC SKU#1082

Adaptation:

Hancock's Coated and Hulled Common Bermuda Grass Seed thrives in tropical regions, subtropical regions, and transition regions. This includes the states of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Southern California, and Hawaii.

Hulled Seed vs. Unhulled Seed

The process of hulling refers to the process of removing the outer shell of a Bermuda Grass seed. Hulled seed has no outer shell when sold to you, whereas Unhulled seed still has its outer covering. There are benefits to both methods, and you should consider which option makes the most sense for your situation before purchasing Common Bermuda. Hulled seed is much more efficient for planting, requiring much less seed per acre or 1,000 sq. ft. However, planting Hulled Seed also means you will need to adhere to a more specific planting time to ensure proper germination. Because of its extra layer of protection, Unhulled seed is more flexible, and it will germinate when conditions are good. Do not confuse "coating" and "hulling." Hancock Seed can add coating to either Hulled or Unhulled Seed in order to boost its germination rate. This will not detract from a seed's Hulled state.

Coated Seed vs Raw Seed

Coated seed contains a clay-based surrounding shell that increases moisture retention and helps to reduce insect or fowl consumption. Coated seed contains approximately 50% coating weight, or inert weight, per pound of seed. Coated Hancock's Common Bermuda Seed (Coated and Hulled) is also easier to see after it is applied. Raw seed features no fillers, coatings, or treatments.

Rave Reviews

It's no secret why Hancock's Common Bermuda Seed (Coated and Hulled) is so popular. The answer is "because it works"! Here are a few of our favorite reviews from clients who have planted Hancock's Common Bermuda Seed (Coated and Hulled):

"I had a tornado shelter installed in my back yard and the backhoe did a lot of damage to my sod," writes Rockford Miller. "I evaluated on re-sodding my back yard, or planning grass seed. I purchased winter rye blend with Bermuda seed. The rye did perfect and the Bermuda exploded the following Spring. My shelter developed a crack and had to be dug out. There was no question on what I was going to do about fixing my lawn. I ordered this product and have applied it to my yard. A simple web search help me find Hancock Seed. I can't say enough about this product. Hands down great quality. Thank you for making a quality product."

"I previously lived in North Carolina and I am familiar with Bermuda grass—you can't kill it," writes Rick B. "Now in North Central Florida, I am remediating about half of my 1/4 acre yard, which was overrun with weeds when we moved in about a year ago. I decided on Bermuda grass for the sunny areas and Centipede grass for the sun/shade areas. So far, compared to another big box store Bermuda grass seed product, Hancock's seed has done much better. The key is faithful watering twice daily (unless rain takes care of that) and lots of patience. Weeds are coming up also but eventually I hope the Bermuda grass crowds it out. Not at all like northern cool season grass seed which pops up in no time. Hancock's customer support has been superior! Thank you Hancock Seed."

"Packaging great, shipping Speed Good," says John R. "Germination, been down 3 weeks now just starting to see some sprouts. Tilled yard and prep ground prior to seeding apply with spreader going right-left and up down."

"Tilled yard and amended soil with lime and fertilizer," reports William K. "Hancock says you can expect to see germination in as little as seven days but I was seeing it around day five. Good product will buy again and worth the money."

Lawn Applications

For new lawns, plant 1-2 lbs. of seed per 1,000 sq. ft.

For lawn fertilization, apply 5-10 lbs. of 16-04-08 slow release fertilizer per 1,000 sq. ft., four times a year (late Spring, mid-Summer, late Summer, and early Fall) for the first two years. Apply 5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. two times (mid-Summer, and late Summer) a year after a fully-established lawn has been accomplished.

Pasture Applications

For new pastures, plant 15-30 lbs. of seed per acre. For erosion areas, plant 25-50 lbs. per acre.

For pasture fertilization, apply 250-350 lbs. of 16-04-08 slow release fertilizer per acre, three times a year (late Spring, mid-Summer, and early Fall). Animals that are grazing will damage the Bermuda grass if the pasture is not properly fertilized annually. The grass must be provided with adequate nutrients to compete with the animals.

Coated seed contains approximately 50% coating weight, or inert weight, per pound of seed. Coated Hancock's Common Bermuda Seed (Coated and Hulled) is also easier to see after it is applied. Raw seed features no fillers, coatings, or treatments.

Rave Reviews

It's no secret why Hancock's Common Bermuda Seed (Coated and Hulled) is so popular. The answer is "because it works"! Here are a few of our favorite reviews from clients who have planted Hancock's Common Bermuda Seed (Coated and Hulled):

"I had a tornado shelter installed in my back yard and the backhoe did a lot of damage to my sod," writes Rockford Miller. "I evaluated on re-sodding my back yard, or planning grass seed. I purchased winter rye blend with Bermuda seed. The rye did perfect and the Bermuda exploded the following Spring. My shelter developed a crack and had to be dug out. There was no question on what I was going to do about fixing my lawn. I ordered this product and have applied it to my yard. A simple web search help me find Hancock Seed. I can't say enough about this product. Hands down great quality. Thank you for making a quality product."

"I previously lived in North Carolina and I am familiar with Bermuda grass—you can't kill it," writes Rick B. "Now in North Central Florida, I am remediating about half of my 1/4 acre yard, which was overrun with weeds when we moved in about a year ago. I decided on Bermuda grass for the sunny areas and Centipede grass for the sun/shade areas. So far, compared to another big box store Bermuda grass seed product, Hancock's seed has done much better. The key is faithful watering twice daily (unless rain takes care of that) and lots of patience. Weeds are coming up also but eventually I hope the Bermuda grass crowds it out. Not at all like northern cool season grass seed which pops up in no time. Hancock's customer support has been superior! Thank you Hancock Seed."

"Packaging great, shipping Speed Good," says John R. "Germination, been down 3 weeks now just starting to see some sprouts. Tilled yard and prep ground prior to seeding apply with spreader going right-left and up down."

"Tilled yard and amended soil with lime and fertilizer," reports William K. "Hancock says you can expect to see germination in as little as seven days but I was seeing it around day five. Good product will buy again and worth the money."

Lawn Applications

For new lawns, plant 1-2 lbs. of seed per 1,000 sq. ft.

For lawn fertilization, apply 5-10 lbs. of 16-04-08 slow release fertilizer per 1,000 sq. ft., four times a year (late Spring, mid-Summer, late Summer, and early Fall) for the first two years. Apply 5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. two times (mid-Summer, and late Summer) a year after a fully-established lawn has been accomplished.

Pasture Applications

For new pastures, plant 15-30 lbs. of seed per acre. For erosion areas, plant 25-50 lbs. per acre.

For pasture fertilization, apply 250-350 lbs. of 16-04-08 slow release fertilizer per acre, three times a year (late Spring, mid-Summer, and early Fall). Animals that are grazing will damage the Bermuda grass if the pasture is not properly fertilized annually. The grass must be provided with adequate nutrients to compete with the animals.

Looks good but haven't used yet.

I haven't used it yet. Decided to use next spring. Still sealed and storing in my pantry. Be one year since it was packaged when I use it. I am sure it will be fine. I will order more as needed.

Item is good quality - customer service is just ok

Overall we are pleased with the item. NOT pleased that packaging wasn’t sufficient to contain the bag that busted or became unseen during transit. Also NOT pleased that we were Advised to jump thru numerous hoops to try to get the unknown amount of lost seed replaced. Ultimately we did receive replacement seed however it took a lot of time, effort and back on forth on our past that I do not feel was justified.

Great Product

This is my third purchase of seed. We had sod installed originally, but it never was thick. Then we had some earth work done and I elected to give Hancock see a try. The quality of the seed I bought was impressive and we are now re-establishing our lawn.
