Centipede grass is a slow-growing, coarse leafed grass that is well adapted for Savannah's sunny yards. It requires little fertilizer (one to two pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet per year). Most lawns in Savannah can be mowed every 2 weeks unless excessive water causes irregular growth. Centipede needs atleast 4 hours of full sun to thrive. This is not a good lawn for vehicle traffic or heavy use.
