Hancock's Centipede Grass Seed (Coated)
Back

Hancock's Centipede Grass is a low-maintenance, low growing, crawling lawn grass with medium leaf texture and pale green color. Centipede lawn grass varieties require little to no chemical treatments, growing well in poor soils, full sun or partial shade with little or low maintenance or fertilization. Centipede grass is also preferred for its drought tolerance and little mowing requirements.

Centipede Grass (Eremochloa ophiuroides) was introduced into the United States from seed found in the baggage of Frank Meyer, a USDA plant explorer who disappeared on his fourth trip to China in 1916. It was initially used for low-maintenance cemeteries and eventually for lawns, during and after the Great Depression, and is sometimes referred to as "lazy man's grass," or "poor man's grass."

Adaptation

Hancock's Coated Centipede Grass Seed is very popular for home lawns in the Southeastern United States, including Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

Coated Seed vs Raw Seed

Coated seed contains a clay-based surrounding shell that increases moisture retention and helps to reduce insect or fowl consumption. Coated seed contains approximately 50% coating weight, or inert weight, per pound of seed. Coated Centipede Seed is also easier to see after it is applied. Raw seed is pure, raw seed just like it sounds. Raw features no fillers, coatings or treatments.

For new lawns, seed Hancock's Coated Centipede Grass Seed any time it can be prepared, except in late summer. Planting in Florida should be accomplished no later than the end of August due to the chance of frost damage to young seedlings. Early Spring plantings should include 1-2 lbs. of Winter Rye Grass as a cover grass per 1000 sq. ft.

Prepare the seedbed by tilling the soil. Remove existing grass and debris. Apply 10-15 lbs. of a complete fertilizer per 1,000 sq. Do not use a weed-and-feed fertilizer product! Distribute seed evenly over soil surface by using a cyclone-type spreader. Mix with sand for best results and even distribution. Plant by raking the seed into the soil to a depth of no more than 1/2 inch. Keep the seedbed moist constantly for two to three weeks after planting. Hancock's Coated Centipede Grass Seed should germinate in 2 to 3 weeks. After germination, water only as needed.

Maintain your lawn by mowing at 1.5 to 2 in. in height. Cut no more than 1/3 of the leaf off during one mowing. Use sharp mower blades.

Fertilizer should be applied to Hancock's Centipede Grass in 1 to 3 applications, from spring green-up through fall. Do not apply nitrogen too early in the growing season (particularly in north Florida) or subsequent frosts may damage the grass. Likewise, don't fertilize too late in the year, as this can slow regrowth the following spring. If applying water-soluble fertilizers at the lower application rate, it will take more applications to apply the total amount of fertilizer needed for the year than if applying a slow-release fertilizer form.

Overseed your existing lawn with 1 lb. per 5,000 square feet. Depending on the existing vegetation, seed rates should be adjusted to fit your specific needs. Higher seed rates will increase coverage on existing lawn applications.
