I'm pretty sure I'm going to go w/ the Centipede this spring. I was wondering how to prep the soil. I read I should till some Humus into the ground before putting down centipede, but I also heard it likes sand. Is it better to mix in just sand or a combo of both? How much of each? I have the typical red clay and was thinking about just mixing in some "clay breaker" mulch. It's a fairly new home as well so there is very little organic matter in the soil currently and it gets pretty rock hard in the summer. I looked online and I'm not quite sure what to do, if anything, about the clay. Thanks in advance!
