If you have recently purchased sod or moved into a new construction home over the winter, now is the time to start a strict watering schedule. Your new construction lawn should be watered every day for the next two to three weeks. Do NOT fertilize any NEW turfgrass at this time. Weed treatments are safe now, but make sure to follow all application instructions.
If you already have an established yard, now is the perfect time to apply fertilizer....Just stay away from big box store fertilizers (i.e. Scotts Turf Builder, Bonus S, and Weed and Feed) . These usually have too much nitrogen and will eventually damage your centipede lawn.
