We have been so dry and hot here in the San Antonio area and we are thinking about seeding with Bermuda on whats left of our St. Augustine. Nieighbor on one side has Bermuda and the other SA.Thought on this. We have full sun but with the lack of water here our lawn looks good for about a mth and then terrible there after. Thanks

Overseeding with bermuda isn't a bad idea. It will help your lawn green up for the summer, but regardless of the turf type, you will need to water to keep it green. If you haven't already, consider aerating your lawn and spreading a layer of compost or sand over the top. The compost or sand will work its way down into the holes the aerator left and give the water a place to collect. When you do water, water slowly so it can percolate down and wet the entire rootsystem. This should help your lawn remain greener longer.
