I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Start by spraying the bermudagrass growing where you want to plant with a product containing glyphosate (Roundup is one brand). Give it a week to work and then rototill or spade the planting areas. Mix in an inch or two of compost as you turn over the soil. You can then begin to plant. While fall is the best planting time you can plant in summer if you keep the soil moist but not soggy. Make sure and select plants for each area based on the plant's desire for sun or shade.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
