My reason for converting that area to centipede is the lawn is 75 ft up the side of a mountain and there is no way to get a reel mower up there. 21" rotary yes, but not my greensmower.
How are you going to convert this lawn to centipede? Chemically kill out the bermuda & zoysia and start from scratch?

On my original question, my soil is acid enough to favor cenitpede. If I were to attempt to convert the way I explained how would "you" go about? Keep in mind I am not in a rush and I can control all aspects unlike a customers lawn.
