    Hello all,

    We have a customer who has a centipede lawn full of clovers, annual bluegrass, and other various weeds. I am seeking advice on how to treat.

    I was thinking of a post-emergent weed killer, then pre-emergent herbicide, and then fertilizer for the centipede.

    Can someone please reccommend post-emergent, pre-emergent, and fertilizer chemical names for this applicaiton?

    Also, what time frames should this be applied -- I don't want to shock the lawn by doing too much at once.

    Thanks for your help.

    I would stay away from the Pre Em even though it is common practice. I have had negative experiences on centipede & pre. Search and read the many posts on centipede. It is very sensitive.
