The Q&A Archives: Weed and Feed for Lawn

Question: When can I apply weed and feed to my centipede lawn, and what combination of nutrients do I choose?

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).
