Centipede & St. Augustine Grass Program

Custom Lawn Care Package

Centipede and St. Augustine grasses provide an attractive turf when consistently and carefully managed but they are easily damaged by extreme weather or if the wrong weed-control products are used. Our year-round lawn care plans protect these types from their unique susceptibilities and provide them with the nutrients needed to thrive.
