There is no simple way to get rid of the bermuda. Digging out the Bermuda and reseeding with fescue is one approach, withholding water until the bermuda dies out is another approach, and using a Bermuda grass herbicide (such as RoundUp)is another. Reseeding will be necessary once you've gotten rid of the Bermuda. Best wishes with your project!
