I live in Baltimore County with fescue grass. I just bought the land behind my house and I am attempting to build a mini driving range with Bermuda grass.

Questions:Will Bermuda do well in Maryland?Is over-seeding the most cost effective way?How long will it take for Bermuda to overtake the fescue?Is it easy to maintain?

Many types of bermuda will winter kill in your area, but there is a new type called -‘Yukon’, which is said to be very winter hardy. The bermuda will not take over the fescue completely, but it will be the dominant grass- especially if the mowing height is low. You can enter bermuda into the exsisting turf by aerifying, seeding, and then dragging the cores with a steel mat,(like the kind they use to drag baseball infields). Do a Google search to find ‘Yukon’ seed, or check local landscape supply outlets.
