Carpetgrass Seed - Coated
Back

Carpetgrass is primarily used in lawn, pasture and landscape applications in the south. This grass has the ability to withstand saturated soils and will tolerate periods of standing water. Carpetgrass is used in coastal and low lying areas.

Product Information

  • Application or Use: Lawn, Pasture, Parks & Recreation, Cover Crop, Erosion Control
  • Germination Time: 14 - 21 days, under optimal conditions
  • Growing Locations: Warm Season
  • Height: 0.75 - 2 inches
  • Sunlight Requirements: 6 - 8 hours, full sun for best results
  • Advantages: Grows well in wet, poorly drained soil making it an ideal choice for low lying lawns or pastures.
  • When to Plant: Recommended planting time is Spring when night time temperatures consistently above 65 degrees and 3 months prior to first frost.

 

Product Details

  • Warm-season perennial grass
  • Will grow in tropical and sub-tropical areas
  • Moderate shade tolerant
  • Low-maintenance grass
  • Good tolerance to standing water    

Product Information
Carpetgrass is a creeping, warm season perennial grass that is native to the West Indies. Carpetgrass was introduced into the United States in the early 1800s and has become naturalized in the southeastern states, especially on poorly drained soils. Carpetgrass physically resembles centipede grass in terms of leaf density and shape.

Carpetgrass grows on wet, low-pH soils where few other grasses persist, and has moderate shade tolerance. It is low growing and produces a dense turf with good color if moderate fertilization rates are applied. It is a low-maintenance grass that does not require excessive amounts of fertilizer. Carpetgrass also can be grown from seed.

Carpetgrass will not survive on very dry soils unless irrigated frequently. It has shallow roots that impart poor drought tolerance. During the summer, carpetgrass produces numerous tall, thin seedheads that require frequent mowing for removal.It is subject to insect, nematode, and disease problems. It does not grow well outside of acidic (pH: 5.0 to 5.5) soils. Carpetgrass is not recommended for a high-quality lawn; however, it can be used in wet, shady areas where ease of maintenance is more important than quality.  Carpetgrass is not used for hay production.

Carpetgrass may be established from seeds or sprigs. Sod is not commonly available. Success with either propagation method is highly dependent on proper soil preparation.  Germination of Carpetgrass will occur within 14-21 days if the conditions are all correct.

Seeding
Seeding is easier and less expensive than sprigging. Use fresh, weed-free seed. Broadcast at the
rate of 4 - 5 pounds per 1000 square feet. Planting dates are April to July. It is advisable to kill any existing weeds with a nonselective herbicide such as glyphosate before planting.

Fertilization
Proper fertilization of carpet grass is an important practice in a good maintenance program. Carpetgrass does not tolerate excessive use of fertilizer, especially nitrogen. For a low-fertility regime, a complete fertilizer can be applied at 1 pound of N per 1000 square feet annually. For a slightly higher quality lawn, up to 2 pounds of N can be applied annually.

Mowing
If fertilized as recommended, carpetgrass will require mowing every 10 to 14 days at a height of 1 to 2 inches. Weekly mowing with a rotary mower may be necessary during the summer to remove the unsightly seedheads.

Carpetgrass will not survive on very dry soils unless irrigated frequently. It has shallow roots that impart poor drought tolerance. During the summer, carpetgrass produces numerous tall, thin seedheads that require frequent mowing for removal.It is subject to insect, nematode, and disease problems. It does not grow well outside of acidic (pH: 5.0 to 5.5) soils. Carpetgrass is not recommended for a high-quality lawn; however, it can be used in wet, shady areas where ease of maintenance is more important than quality.  Carpetgrass is not used for hay production.

Carpetgrass may be established from seeds or sprigs. Sod is not commonly available. Success with either propagation method is highly dependent on proper soil preparation.  Germination of Carpetgrass will occur within 14-21 days if the conditions are all correct.

When to Plant
Spring & Summer

Seeding
Seeding is easier and less expensive than sprigging. Use fresh, weed-free seed. Broadcast at the
rate of 4 - 5 pounds per 1000 square feet. Planting dates are April to July. It is advisable to kill any existing weeds with a nonselective herbicide such as glyphosate before planting.

Fertilization
Proper fertilization of carpet grass is an important practice in a good maintenance program. Carpetgrass does not tolerate excessive use of fertilizer, especially nitrogen. For a low-fertility regime, a complete fertilizer can be applied at 1 pound of N per 1000 square feet annually. For a slightly higher quality lawn, up to 2 pounds of N can be applied annually.

Mowing
If fertilized as recommended, carpetgrass will require mowing every 10 to 14 days at a height of 1 to 2 inches. Weekly mowing with a rotary mower may be necessary during the summer to remove the unsightly seedheads.

Life saver.

In southeast Ga and our customers love planting carpetgrass, but it has been several years since my vendors had availability. I found these guys online and the rest is history. Very satisfied with this company.

Did not get my order

You canceled my order saying the quality of the carpet grass seed from your supplier did not meet your standards.

Yes, unfortunately the carpet grass seed test came back with a germ too low to legally sell and we only sell the freshest and best seed possible. We can certainly let you know when we get more carpetgrass with great germination percentage. We do apologize for the inconvenience we didn't want to send you seed that we knew you would have bad results. Thank you for your review!

Hard to find seed

I was browsing the internet searching for seed that have been really hard to find in our area, and though it is not time to plant the seed, I am just glad that they had some available. I have purchased seed from this company in the past and they grow very well.
