TifBlair Centipede Grass Seed
Back

TifBlair Centipede is a variety of Centipede that has proven strong during various testing, showing improved cold tolerance. This aggressive seed sends out longer runners than a majority of Centipede options, meaning it chokes out weeds and other grasses at a higher rate.

Product Information

  • Application or Use: Lawn & Turf
  • Germination Time: 21 - 30 days, under optimal conditions
  • Growing Locations: Warm Season Zone, Transition Zone
  • Height: 1.5 - 2 inches
  • Sunlight Requirements: 6+ hours, full sun for best results
  • Advantages: Grows more densely and vigorously than Common Centipede, and makes mowing easier due to its slow growth habit, tolerance to poor soils and drought conditions, suitable for both full sun/partial shade
  • When to Plant: Recommended planting time is spring and summer when nighttime temperatures are consistently 65+ degrees and 3 months prior to first frost.

 

Product Detail

  • Used for lawns, parks, roadsides and landscape
  • Improved cold tolerance
  • Less mowing
  • Fast germination
  • Long runners to choke out weeds


Product Information

TifBlair Centipede has proven to be a improved variety of Centipede Grass through research trials over the last few years. TifBlair Centipede is commonly used for home lawns, parks, roadsides, and landscape projects. TifBlair Centipede lawns require 50% less mowing than other lawn grass varieties. TifBlair Centipede is a fast and aggressive lawn grass variety. It will continue to spread after it is established, choking out weeds and other grasses. TifBlair Centipede grass is an excellent choice for home lawns in the Southeast. This is a certified centipede seed and the seed is coated.

TifBlair Centipede is more cold tolerant, and produces longer runners than common Centipede. TifBlair Centipede also germinates faster. TifBlair Centipede is very popular for home lawns in the Southeastern United States, including Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

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.

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 features no fillers, coatings, or treatments.

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."

TifBlair can be planted anytime a new lawn can be prepared. Late summer planting (August 15 - November 1) is not advised due to inadequate time for establishment before Winter. For best results, plant in March or April, but quicker germination will occur from May through July. TifBlair can be planted in the fall of the year, after the soil temperatures are cold enough to prevent germination (typically after November 1). TifBlair seed will not germinate until the soil warms the following Spring.

To determine the amount of seed to purchase, multiply the length of the your lawn in feet by the width in feet to determine the square feet (sq. ft.). Subtract area for sidewalks, driveways, and other areas that will not be planted. Plant TifBlair Centipede at a rate of 1/2 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. Higher seeding rates (up to 1lb. per 1000 sq. ft.) will produce a quicker grow-in, and produce a more dense turf in a shorter amount of time. Using higher rates of seed is more cost-effective than trying to save money on "light" seeding rates, because more watering and weed control will be necessary with "light" rates.

Follow these instructions to establishing a beautiful and attractive lawn:

Remove loose debris, such as sticks, stones, and trash. Till and loosen soil to create a crumbly seedbed. Work in a 5-10-15 fertilizer at a rate of 10 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. Centipede thrives in acidic soil. To prepare seedbed, rake thoroughly and smooth the surface to provide a crumbly top layer that is ideal for sowing.

Sow the seed according to your spreader's recommended rate. Divide seed into two equal portions. Sow in one direction east to west, then use second portion and sow north to south to insure uniform coverage. Work seed into soil 1/4 to 1/2 in. with the flexing rake. Roll yard smooth. 

Most importantly: Water thoroughly and frequently, but avoid creating puddles. Soil should be kept moist up to 1/2 in. deep, until emergence of the seedlings. Water less frequently after seedling emergence. Water only as needed after stand is established. Mow frequently to control weeds once seedlings are established, taking care to never remove than 1/3 of the plant.

Reseeding existing centipede lawns:
Cut existing lawn as close as possible or use Round Up to reduce vigor and competition from existing lawn. Rake or scratch (aerify, scarify) the surface and remove debris.

Apply seed and water as described above.

Remove loose debris, such as sticks, stones, and trash. Till and loosen soil to create a crumbly seedbed. Work in a 5-10-15 fertilizer at a rate of 10 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. Centipede thrives in acidic soil. To prepare seedbed, rake thoroughly and smooth the surface to provide a crumbly top layer that is ideal for sowing.

Sow the seed according to your spreader's recommended rate. Divide seed into two equal portions. Sow in one direction east to west, then use second portion and sow north to south to insure uniform coverage. Work seed into soil 1/4 to 1/2 in. with the flexing rake. Roll yard smooth. 

Most importantly: Water thoroughly and frequently, but avoid creating puddles. Soil should be kept moist up to 1/2 in. deep, until emergence of the seedlings. Water less frequently after seedling emergence. Water only as needed after stand is established. Mow frequently to control weeds once seedlings are established, taking care to never remove than 1/3 of the plant.

Reseeding existing centipede lawns:
Cut existing lawn as close as possible or use Round Up to reduce vigor and competition from existing lawn. Rake or scratch (aerify, scarify) the surface and remove debris.

Apply seed and water as described above.

No germanation

Not a single seed germinated. I had freshly tilled ground. Spread seed and lightly covered with straw because it was on an incline. Watered everyday and not a sprout anywhere!!!!

Met my Expectations

My new grass is beautiful. Memorial Day weekend, I tilled up my areas, added grass starter fertilizer then the centipede seed. Covered, watered as instructed-enough to moisten daily and in 2 weeks it was coming up, now is plentiful and beautiful. Have always bought sod in the past that usually died-you really have no idea where this sod is from, could be diseased. From now on will buy seed, plan on buying some more next spring for other areas of my yard. So glad I came across this website for Hancock, I now have grass!
