Planting Centipede & Mulch On Cleared Ground

Prepare the soil for seeding by tilling then smoothing and raking the lawn to the point of having a smooth firm seedbed. Plant one bag of Pennington's Centipede Grass Seed & Mulch mixture per 2,000 square feet. The seed and mulch are blended to give the correct seeding rate for each of the two components.

Lightly rake the seedbed to cover the seed and the mulch no more than 1/4” deep. Mulch the seeded area lightly with wheat straw or pine straw. Water daily for 30 days keeping the seedbed moist at all times. The Centipede plants will emerge, and over a period of one growing season should form a sod. On poor soils or in unfavorable growing conditions, it may take two growing seasons to completely form a sod.

Planting Centipede Grass Seed & Mulch Over Existing Grass Area

Spray the existing grass with a non-selective herbicide labeled for lawn use. Wait approximately 7 days to make certain all grass is killed. On spots not completely dead, re-spray with herbicide. Wait approximately 7 days after the final spraying and plant Pennington’s Centipede Grass Seed & Mulch mixture at the rate of one bag per 2,000 square feet, making certain the seed and mulch are spread evenly across the area. Aerate the area thoroughly using a checkerboard type pattern. Using a standard lawn mower, mow the dead grass close to the ground allowing the clippings to remain on the ground as a mulch covering the seed. Water daily for 30 days keeping the seedbed moist at all times.
An alternate method of seeding is to mow the lawn closely, then aerate the lawn well with a spike aerator or similar tool. Plant the seed as directed in methods 1 or 2, then aerate or rake lightly to cover the seed no deeper than 1/4” deep. Water daily for 30 days, keeping the seed moist at all times. This is much better than using herbicides.

Fertilize in early spring with a Centipede fertilizer. Centipede lawns prefer a pH between 5.0-6.0. Water weekly for best appearance when established. For more detailed planting instructions please visit www.centipedegrass.com .
