This is the time of year when we receive the most questions regarding care of your centipede lawn. It is TOO EARLY to be fertilizing your existing yard now! As a general rule of thumb, your centipede yard should not be fertilized until after April 15th (just remember TAX day). 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. We also recommend that you DO NOT fertilize freshly laid turf. Also, if you have recently laid fresh sod, frequent watering is not yet necessary. Save the water until the first weeks of April or first sign of green up when you will need to water every day.
