    If I were to do this what is the correct and easiest way to go from centipede to zoysia? Would I have to kill off the centipede or would the zoysia choke it out? Also what variety should I use? I have been looking at plugs from Amazoy and Meyers plugs.

    Thanks Mac

    I would not use plugs, they grow way to slowly and also from reading about all the horror stories about Amazoy I would stay clear of using that company, you can do to Turfgrass.com and do a search to see what I am talking about, also they maybe able to help you more on that site than here. Good luck
    I personally would kill off the centipede and than sod it. I have Emerald Zoysia but unless you want to invest in a reel I would use Meyers or Zeon.

    Zoysia will choke the crap out of Centipede in a cage match. Seriously I have some Centipede at my house and some of the Zoysia washed down a little pathway and in one season has choked the Centipede out of an area about 20x 20. I can't get the Zoysia to grow where I want it to.Grows everywhere I don't want it to. It's a very stubborn grass.David
