Answer: Bermuda is a warm season grass and usually does much better when both the soil and the air temperatures are warm. Rye is a cool season grass and grows best in the cooler weather. Many gardeners plant both so they will have a green lawn nearly all year around. I'd plant rye now and bermuda in April or May. In September or October you can overseed your bermuda lawn with rye. As the bermuda goes dormant the rye will green things up. In April when the rye dies out the bermuda will green up.
