Answer #2 · Chason Arthur's Answer · I wouldn't do it because timing would be very critical. If you burned it too early, it would possibly expose the root systems of your dormant lawn more to freezing temperatures that might occur after the burning. Too, contrary to popular belief, there's little if any benefit for fertilization that comes from burning...maybe some trace amounts of phosphorus and potassium, but it's not worth the risk. Stick to detatching the old-fashioned way: by detatching with a hand or power detatcher.)

Answer #1 · Chason Arthur's Answer · I've seen and heard where people "burn off" their Bermuda or Zoysia lawns in winter but would not suggest doing it as it poses a fire risk to your home and to your neighbors property. If you do decide to burn it off, make sure to check with your local fir department to see about whether there are requirements for a burning permit.)
