Lawnifi Santee Centipede Grass Seed

Ships in 1-2 business days.

Santee Centipede Grass Seed is an enhanced warm season grass variety known for rapid establishment and a strong root system, offering resilience to damage and consistent color through seasons.



Santee® Centipede is now offered as a seeded variety. Its massive root system allows it to recover from damage quickly by rapidly covering the ground. The roots encourage better water and nutrient uptake from the soil making it an excellent grass selection for drought conditions. Santee Centipede Seed is a great way to fill in bare spots or to start a new centipede lawn. Santee Centipede seed grows in faster than Common Centipede and features a good fall color retention and spring green-up. Santee is an improved, more robust centipede.

Grass seed is for both home and commercial landscapes, offering a cost-effective way to establish lush, green lawns and fields. For homeowners, it's often used to improve curb appeal, fill in bare patches, or start new lawns, enhancing outdoor living spaces. Commercially, grass seed is vital for golf courses, parks, sports fields, and public green spaces, requiring varieties that withstand heavy use and varying climates. Lawnifi Grass Seed is coated with a layer of fertilizer to ensure faster establishment, making it a great choice for both new lawns and overseeding projects that need to establish quickly.

Use 0.5 lbs of seed per 1,000 sq. ft.

(2 lbs covers 4,000 sqft, 25 lbs covers 50,000 sqft)


Use 0.5 lbs of seed per 2,000 sq. ft.

(2 lbs covers 8,000 sqft, 25 lbs covers 100,000 sqft)


Using the above rates, that means our 2lb package will cover 4,000 sq ft of new lawns and 8,000 sq ft for overseeding. The 25lb package can cover 50,000 sq ft for new grass installation and a whopping 100,000 sq ft for overseeding.

  1. Soil Preparation: Clear the area of weeds, rocks, and debris. Loosen the top 2-3 inches of soil to create a welcoming bed for the seeds.
  2. Fertilize: Apply a starter fertilizer like the Lawnifi New Lawn Starter Box to the soil to ensure the seeds have the nutrients they need to grow.
  3. Seed Distribution: Spread the seeds evenly across the soil. For large areas, consider using a mechanical spreader; for smaller patches, hand-spreading can be effective.
  4. Soil Coverage: Gently rake the area to cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil, which helps retain moisture and protect the seed.
  5. Watering: Keep the seeded area moist with light, frequent watering until the seeds germinate and the grass begins to grow. Water every day in the early mornings.
  6. Post-Care: Continue fertilizing with the Lawnifi New Lawn Starter Box for the next 30 days.

New seeded lawn

We built a new home where it was previously pine woods here in South Carolina. Primarily sandy soil with little water retention. Had sprinkler system put in and a straw rake was used to reprep the yard behind a tractor. I put out 6 lbs of santee centipede seed and watered for up to 10-12 min per zone every 2 hrs during the heat of the day initially. I could see sprouts in about 14-16 days. Lots of crabgrass came up as well but Tenacity herbicide is taking care of that nicely. It’s now been 25 days and some areas where the soil holds more water is fairly thick already. Others not so much. I put out 50 lbs of 5-10-30 fertilizer which is favorable for centipede about 3 weeks in which was too late honestly. Plan to put out Milorganite today. 6,000 sq ft area.

Haven’t try yet

Not sure yet

I was surprised at how far the 2lbs container went but as of right now I can not share any results. I’m only at day 7, nothing yet.
