LAWN NOT LOOKING LIKE IT SHOULD?
Centipede grass or (Eremochloa ophiuroides) is a warm season grass that has a spreading root system. For this reason it is usually treated with the same chemicals, fertilizer and lime regimens that other warm season grasses on a typical treatment round get. This sounds great in theory but considering that there are only around 10 weed killers that can be used on centipede vs 5 times that on bermuda and zoysia you start to run out of options really fast if you don't know what you are doing. Not to mention a burnt lawn that looks like a mine field. Improper fertilization, misuse of wrong weed weed controls, improper mowing and irrigation practices all lead to either the immediate or slow death of your lawn.

- Which herbicides are safe for my centipede lawn?
- What cut height should the lawn be at?
- How long will it take to fill in?
- Should my centipede be aerated or composted or both?
