Hello, I am going to be spreading bluegrass seed and renting a spreader, is it possible to contaminate my bluegrass if the spreader was used previously for Bermuda grass?

I don't think there will be any bermuda seeds left in the spreader used by someone else but you should be able to clean it out with a garden hose before you use it, just to make sure. This will rinse out any debris that might be lurking inside. Clean it on a driveway or out in the street, not on your sidewalk or turfgrass area, just in case. Good luck with your new lawn~
