Centipede Grass in Alabama

Thursday, December 15th, 2022 by Samantha Moore

Centipede grass is a medium to light green color. You can tell this species of turf by the medium-length blades that are thin and lanceolate shaped. You can plant this grass in poor soil that is sandy or acidic. If you live near coastal areas, it is better to plant St. Augustine or Bermuda grass because those grass species are more resistant to salt. Regular mowing and watering will help to keep the grass healthy. However, it doesn’t have such a deep luscious green color as other types of lawn grass.

Grass identification:
● Grass color: light to medium green
● Blade shape: thin, folded leaves that taper to a point
or boat shape
● Growth habit: slow-growing turf grass that spreads
via runners
