The Q&A Archives: Fertilizing

Question: How often should you fertilize centipede grass?

Answer: Centipede grass does not need as much fertilizer as some other lawn grasses, but it can turn yellow if the soil is alkaline and low in iron. If this is a problem, spread iron sulphate or iron chelate. Otherwise, just fertilize in the early spring with 1 to 2 pounds of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet.
