The best way to fight weeds is to keep your lawn healthy. A consistent watering, mowing and fertilizing schedule will go a long way toward that end. Centipede grass responds well to this type of nurturing and will fight weeds on its own. Weed & feed fertilizer, applied annually, will take care of any stubborn weeds that germinate.
It is important to read the label on the weed & feed package to ascertain that it is safe to use on centipede grass. All-purpose mixes can harm the grass.
Apply the weed &feed to centipede grass two weeks after green up -- when the lawn comes out of dormancy. You must apply it before the temperatures reach 85 degrees Fahrenheit, so don't wait too long after the lawn breaks dormancy.
Water your lawn before applying the weed & feed. This helps the weed & feed granules stick to the weeds' foliage.
