Hancock's Common Bermuda Grass Seed (Coated & Un-hulled)
Back

Hancock's 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.

Hancock's 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.

One of the aspects that makes Common Bermuda a popular option for creating a new lawn is its low-maintenance requirements, and its aggressive growing tendencies. Because of the quick spread of Common Bermuda Grass, it often crowds out weeds that can become a nuisance for those trying to maintain a lawn. The only exception will be during the Winter months, when Common Bermuda Grass naturally goes dormant because of the colder weather. At this point, due to the decrease in growth, weeds will be able to "make a break for it." At the same time, those keeping gardens that border the lawn will need to keep an eye on how quickly the Common Bermuda Grass spreads; it will frequently get through cracks in retaining walls and continue growing anywhere it can find healthy soil! 

Adaptation:

Hancock's 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 Unhulled) 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 Unhulled) 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 Unhulled):


"I am very happy with my purchase and my experience thus far has been fantastic," says Shirley P. "The seeds are filling in my holes in the lawn very well and the grass looks good and healthy. I am so satisfied that I will be purchasing the product again real soon."

"Received my seed, distributed seed accordingly and had gemination within 10 days, with 99% success!" writes Collin P. "Have ordered another 50lb bag for overseeding in the future. Would definitely recommend Hancock Seed Company and will be a repeat customer."

"Hancock Seed delivery was fast and packaged very nicely," says Joe. M. "They were helpful is telling me how and when to plant, now just waiting for some warmer days."

And our favorite from Bruce H., who sums up what we aim for the Hancock Experience to be: "Good shipping, Good product, Good results!"

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.

Although Bermuda Grass is adapted to thrive in areas where temperatures are high, it can struggle during periods of low rainfall where soil moisture is on the low side. When soil moisture is low, circular patches of brown grass can form, a condition commonly referred to as "Brown Spot." This most frequently happens during both the Spring and Fall, when daytime temperatures are warm and then drop to cooler places in the evening. The best way to prevent Brown Spot is through an annual, moderate application of fertilizer, as well as weekly irrigation during these seasons. Watering the lawn should occur during the early morning hours so that the grass dries quickly during the day, preventing fungal problems.

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.
