Bermuda may be a nice place to vacation but bermuda grass is a terrible invader of fescue lawns here in Annapolis. We see bermuda grass spread quickly throughout lawns while pushing out the desireable fescue grass. It will also spread into mulch beds and to the neighbor's lawn. It is invasive and very durable, withstanding the driest and hottest conditions. If bermuda grass is caught early on, Jon's Lawns uses products that can kill the bermuda grass without harming your good grass. However, occasionally we get a new customer where the bermuda grass has gotten out of control and we must resort to the nuclear option and wipe it all out and start over. Pictured below is such a case. In fall of 2016 bermuda grass had entirely taken over the lower slope of the front yard. And as of today the entire yard is bermuda grass-free and the fescue grass is looking good.
