This is the time of year when we receive the most questions regarding care of your centipede lawn. If you have recently laid sod, or purchased a new construction home in the last several months, it is time to start thinking about a watering routine. We are at the point where watering new turf is required everyday for the next couple of weeks. Water in the morning or evening (or both) thoroughly until the ground UNDER the sod is wet. While we do not recommend fertilizing new sod, it is ok to fertilize your existing yard. When you do fertilize, we recommend staying away from the fertilizers at the big box stores. Visit your local lawn and garden center and ask for a centipede specific fertilizer. Using some of the popular brands, even though they say "centipede" on the bag, can be very harmful to your yard.
