Answer: The most common practice in your area is to overseed the warm-season bermuda grass with a cool-season perennial ryegrass. Ryegrasses thrive in temperatures between 50 and 75F, when most bermuda grasses are dormant. I suggest you power-rake the lawn area and broadcast perennial ryegrass seed over the entire area. As the ryegrass grows it will cover up the mats of dormant bermuda grass and keep your lawn area nice and green. When the weather begins to warm up, the ryegrass will die back just as the bermuda grass begins to grow. October, November and even early December are good months to over-seed your lawn. It's not too late, but now's the time to do it.
Best wishes with your new yard!
