Hi, I recently moved into a house that has bermuda, centipede and bahia grass. Two weeks ago I reseeded a section with centipede. Next spring I will continue so that my lawn is totally centipede. My question is the previous homeowner did not care for the lawn. Can I use the 20lb Ironite Mineral Supplement 1-0-1 on my lawn? Some parts of the bahia are yellow. How often should you use Ironite,&when?

You can apply Ironite in April as your lawn is coming out of dormancy. It won't hurt to use it now but I'd have a soil test done to see where the pH is and whether or not you will need to use Ironite on a regular basis. A soil test will help you plan your overall maintenance calendar to keep your lawn as green as possible. Best wishes with your lawn.
