I have Bermuda grass and have increased my watering to three times a week for about 20 minutes. I cut my grass for the first time this weekend and I still have allot of dead grass. Should I be watering more? Should a uses a fertilizer?

This summer you should be watering bermuda every three days. If you water more often than that you encourage shallow roots and the grass will be more susceptible to summer die back. I'd switch to twice a week after you have mowed your lawn two more times. You can feed your turf after the second mowing. It will should fill in by mid summer, be nice and thick, and uniformly green with your continued good care. Enjoy!
