About Centipede

Centipede is one of the most popular lawn grasses in the eastern region due to its low growing, apple-green, low maintenance habits. However centipede cannot handle heavy traffic, high PH soils, compaction, salt and heavy shaded areas. Centipede should be fertilized with 1/2 lb. of nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. per year. Centipede is a slow growing grass with low mowing requirements and does not appear scalped when cutting is delayed.
