StarPro Centipede is our designer turf. The blades are two-tone (lawn green and beige-green) and have a natural tan component to the thatch layer which gives it a lighter and very natural appearance in the southern states. This turf heralds in a new generation of synthetic lawns that look like real grass. Realistic because it combines the old style turfs durability with two new innovations; a kinked monofilament thatch layer of textures nylon to support the blades and 1 3/4 In. tall blades of grass for a totally natural look. The turf looks like a thick freshly mowed natural lawn. No mowing, trimming, fertilizing or watering, ever! Centipede turf is UV stabilized.

- The centipede turf has two different color blades for an incredibly natural color and real look and is UV stabilized to keep it that way. The turf backing has a black polypropylene coating which stops weeds, adds strength and gives our turf extra life.
- The turf has a dense layer of kinked polypropylene monofilament that forms a thick thatch layer to support the blades and keeps them standing erect.
- Infill is not necessary, but 1/2 in. - 1 in. of sand or tire particulate is highly recommended because it increases the support of the blades, adds weight, softness and extends life. See On-line Installation Instructions.
- Turf is perforated to drain at 50 inches per hour. Orders are in increments of 1 ft. x 15 ft. Ex: If the order is "6 in., you will receive a single 6 ft. x 15 ft. strip of turf (90 sq. ft) not six individual one foot strips.
