How To Plant Centipede Seeds

  • Mix 20 pounds of dry sand with one pound of seed and spread with a spreader at right angles creating a crossing pattern on your lawn.
  • To allow for maximum contact between the seed and the soil, roto till or otherwise scratch area to be seeded to a depth of two to three inches. Drag the surface smooth and firm the seedbed. Evenly distribute seed over the soil and lightly scratch or rake area. Bury the seed at the rate recommended on the bag. If erosion is a concern, mulch lightly with wheat straw to prevent washing and keep soil moist. Do not apply a heavy mulch as this can block light needed for germination.
  • On existing lawns, scalp lawn and remove all grass clippings. Fertilize, then distribute seed evenly and rake with a heavy rake to help seed gain contact with the soil.
  • Regular mowing will keep weeds clipped back and allow young seedlings to grow into a thick turf. Mow centipede regularly where crabgrass growth is heavy as it may be early fall before centipede seedlings can be identified. Light fertilization in early fall and spring is recommended.
  • Mow at a 1 to 1 ½” cutting height, using a sharp blade. Centipede grass does not require mowing as frequently as most other grasses.
