Bermuda grass is a common lawn grass planted throughout the southern and midwestern United States. The grass is low-growing and drought tolerant, but because of Bermuda grass's fast growth and invasive nature, outside of these areas it is thought of as an invasive weed. If Bermuda grass has crept into your lawn, it can be very difficult to remove. The grass spreads underground through rhizomes as well as across the surface of soil in stolons. The best method to remove Bermuda grass is to strip your lawn of sod and re-plant the grass.
Mow your lawn so that it is only 1 inch tall to facilitate easy removal of sod from your lawn.
Rent a gas-powered sod cutter from a lawn or garden store. Gas-powered sod cutters are operated similarly to gas-powered tillers.
Set the level of the blades for cutting away sod from your lawn.
Start the sod cutter and push it over your lawn in 16-inch strips.
Roll up sod and pile it in a compost pile to naturally decompose.
