    i was doing a job over at fort bragg and we had to remove some trees and grass so i brought it home and put it in my back yard where it is mostly crab grass.anyway it took off real good and spreads really fast it dosent grow very tall though.i let it go about 3 weeks one time in the fast growing season to see and it only grew about 2 inches.it is very green with these thin little greenish yellow seed pods that dont grow any higher than the grass.do yall know what it is? i really like it.

    The grass is Centipede. I have it in my yard and love it. Find some info about it on the web as it does not like or need a lot of fertilizer. Best way to spread it is by sprigging. Unless you are a millionaire you will never be able to afford the seed. It is WAY over priced. Good luck. :waving:

    You spelled "references" wrong on your web page
