TifBlair Centipede VS Old Centipede Grass

Q: I want to replace my front lawn. I have heard TifBlair centipede grass is better than the old centipede grass. Is this true?

A: TifBlair centipede grass is an excellent turfgrass, available in both sod and seed forms. It was bred and tested in both Tifton and Blairsville to make sure it could withstand cold damage as well as heat and drought stress. If you plant it, resist the temptation to fertilize often. Only one or two applications are needed each year. Make sure your mowing height is between 1 1/2″ and 2″ high. Differing from this can lead to weather damage. Weed killers and weed preventers can damage centipede grass. Read the labels and follow them exactly.
