Centipede Lawn Plugs - 36 ~ 3x3 Lawn Plugs - Centipede grass is a very popular option in most hot, southern lawn areas. Centipede grass delivers an attractive, dense lawn with a beautiful medium to dark green color. If you prefer looking at your yard more than working in it, Centipede is a wonderful choice for you due to its very low maintenance requirements. With a slow growth rate, Centipede requires minimal mowing. In addition, its complex root system means Centipede is relatively drought resistant and is aggressive enough to compete with and overtake weeds.
