REMBERT, SC - August 17, 2009 - Modern Turf carries a full line of grasses that grow in tough South Carolina soils, including Centipede Grass- known as "The Lazy Man's Grass" due to its low maintenance requirements and its ability to grow in drought conditions. Centipede grass is a solid solution for sandy soil and soil with high acidity.

South Carolina homeowners and lawn care specialists know it can be difficult to grow a full lawn in sandy soil. The high acidity in many SC lawns prevents many grass varieties from rooting and flourishing. Sandy soil also presents problems for many grasses, but Centipede grass can grow in both of these conditions, with little need more than occasional watering. In fact, overwatering can be damaging to centipede grass, one of the reasons it is commonly called the "Lazy Man's Grass."

Modern Turf offers a maintenance schedule on its website detailing exactly how centipede grass should be cared for in order to get the best possible growth. Laid out in a month-by-month calendar form, the schedule allows even an amateur landscaper the ability to grow a lawn, even in the poorest soil conditions.

Centipede grass is a slow-growing course-textured perennial grass that needs little fertilization, infrequent mowing that loves full sun and tolerates partial shade. It grows to an apple green, providing excellent cover for low-traffic lawns. Centipede grass stays green throughout most of the year, making it an excellent choice for southern states.
