Answer: Centipede is naturally a medium green color and should be fertilized less often than other lawngrasses. Overfertilizing will weaken this grass. A fertilizer that contains iron will insure a maximum green. Healthy centipede will "knit" itself into a tight turf that naturally resists weeds. Use only a special Centipede fertilizer (15-0-15) or a weed and feed formulated especially for Centipede grass (others will kill your lawn).
