Centipede grass is a warm-season turfgrass known for its low maintenance requirements and lush, carpet-like appearance. Characterized by its coarse texture and vibrant green color, Centipede grass forms a dense, weed-resistant turf that thrives in full sun to partial shade conditions. It exhibits a slow growth habit, reducing the frequency of mowing, and features stolons, above-ground runners that contribute to its spreading nature. Gardeners and homeowners appreciate Centipede grass for its ability to create a visually appealing, low-maintenance lawn in areas with warm and mild climates.
