Centipede grass does not become dormant in the same way as bermudagrass or zoysiagrass do. Grass can be put into shock by the ups and downs of the weather patterns that occur often in winter. It can be badly harmed if exposed to temperatures below 20 degrees for a lengthy period of time.
What do you do when your grass go dormant?
- Rake up the dead grass to the point where you’re left with only the dirt before you start a new lawn.
- Make sure the seed (and compost, if necessary) are evenly distributed throughout the soil you tilled.
- Water it in and mulch it with healthy grass clippings or leaves to provide additional nutrients
- Use a natural or chemical fertilizer to get it off to a good start
Why is my lawn dying?
- It’s possible that your lawn is receiving too much or too little water, or that the soil is too compacted.
- However, while water is necessary for the health of your grass, it may also be the cause of your lawn’s demise.
- If you water your grass too frequently, you run the danger of damaging it.
- As a general rule, it is preferable to water infrequently yet in sufficient quantities to thoroughly saturate the whole root zone.
Do I need to water dormant grass?
