Just wondering if I could use bermuda grass "hay" as mulch? It was cut over 2 years ago and has been stored in a barn.

Hi Davis, I wouldn't knowingly use Bermuda hay anywhere on my land. It is bound to have viable seed (maybe forever) and the next thing you know...you will be fighting this grass for garden space. Check out several threads here with folks trying to remove it from their gardens
...not even old and moldy or manure from a donkey who ate it.....it is persistent.

at the bottom of this page are 'similar' threads...several about bermuda grass.
