Centipede has long been known as the "lazy man's grass". It is real east to take care of and does not require a lot of attention. If a little care is taken you can have a really nice looking yard with Centipede. It has a medium width blade (5-7mm) and can be lush if given the right amount of fertilizer and water. Most people like it because they can mow it every other week and simply forget about it. It can be cut with a rotary mower and can handle heights of cut up tp 2 inches and as low as 3/4 inch.
