Centipede Sod

Centipede grass is a great choice for homeowners who want an attractive but lower maintenance lawn. As a native grass of China, centipede was first introduced to the US in 1916. It is well adapted to the sandy, acidic soils of the southeastern United States. Known as a creeping grass that has short stems growing upward and resembling the centipede insect, centipede grass is fairly drought and pest tolerant and when managed properly is aggressive enough to choke out other weeds and grasses.
