Centipede Lawns (L 313)


Centipedegrass is a warm season (green in summer, brown or dormant in winter) turfgrass that is very popular in the southern half of Georgia. It is more prone to winter injury if grown farther north but can grow in north Georgia if properly managed. The popularity of centipedegrass is related to its tolerance of low soil fertility, which results in slower growth and less frequent mowing than other lawn grasses. This publication discusses centipede lawns.
