Will centipede choke out fescue?

There are herbicides to kill Fescue out of Centipede but not Centipede out of fescue. If the Centipede is in a specific area, it can be killed with Round Up (which kills everything) and you can seed with Fescue 7 to 10 days later.

Also know, can you mix Centipede and Fescue?

Fescue grasses are shade-tolerant cool-season grasses that grow well in southern parts of the U.S. where it is either too hot or too cold for other grasses. You can sow centipede grass over fescue grass if your grass is patchy, has brown or bare spots or you want an easy grass that does not require much care.

Furthermore, will Zoysia choke out fescue? Zoysia needs less water and less maintenance, and it feels soft and cushy beneath your bare feet. I believe zoysia (has runners) will take over ther fescue, not the other way around. Yes, this is generally true - but there's give and take depending on climate.

Beside this, how do you get rid of centipede grass in fescue?

The best control is achieved by using a weed control product that contains glyphosate, such as Round-Up. Now would be the best time to spray to control Centipede. Unfortunately, glyphosate is a non selective weed control and will kill both the desired and undesired grasses. Therefore, the area will need to be reseeded.

What do you overseed centipede grass with?

The ideal centipede grass fertilizer depends on the soil and any amendments you are using. Test the soil to see if it needs any lime or phosphorus additions. One pound of nitrogen fertilizer is more than enough per 1,000 square feet. Applying excessive nitrogen turns the grass darker.
