Hello nature lover.....!

Centipede grass is native to China and Parts of Southeast Asia and was brought to the US in 1916. It is found in South America, the West Indies and parts of Africa. It is a slow growing creeping grass and has short stems growing upward.  This makes it resemble a centipede insect and so that is what it is called.

CentipedeGrass

This creeping perennial is well adapted to the sandy, acidic soils of low fertility and requires low maintenance. It spreads by stolons and has a coarse texture with short upright stems that grow to about 3-5 inches and requiring less mowing, survives in mild cold temperatures as long as there aren’t several hard freezes since it doesn’t go into a true dormancy and with light freezes will turn brown but as soon as the temperature rises it will recover and re-greens.   


Established Common Centipede

Being a low growing grass it is a favorite of busy lawn growers with a much longer period of days being added to the mowing cycle. Low fertilization (with low phosphorus) requirements can be met by a yearly application. Too much nitrogen can produce growth but cause problems with insects or disease. Centipede is rather drought tolerant and when healthy is aggressive enough to choke out weeds and other grasses.  In the south this grass will remain green throughout the year.  Although the roots are not as deep as Bahia or Bermuda, its close to the ground growth allows for better conservation of water and helps fight drought. Slightly shade tolerant and full sun.

Centipede Planting Rates:
Plant no less than one-fourth (1/4) pound per 1,000 square. One pound of seed covers 2,000 to 4,000 square feet and often produces a good lawn in two to three months of summer growth - We recommend planting 1/2 lb. per 1000 sq. feet for best results. Centipede is slow to establish / patience is required.
