Centipede Sod

Low-Maintenance Sod

First introduced into the United States in the early 1900s, centipede is originally from southern China. It has adapted well to the state of South Carolina and is one of the few turf grasses that performs well on acidic and infertile soils. Centipede needs less fertilization and, therefore, less maintenance than other grasses. For that reason, it is often referred to as the “lazy man’s grass.” And, while it may be the perfect grass for some, it is not for everyone. It depends on your soil type, climate, etc. Centipede is best suited for residential lawns throughout the Midland and Coastal regions of South Carolina.

Characteristics

Centipede requires fewer nutrients and therefore will perform better in less fertile soils like the sandy acidic soils and some clay soils of the Midlands and Coastal regions of South Carolina.
