    Q
    Can I use TifBlair Centipede Grass Seed on existing grass of a different type ?
    I live in Pensacola, FL., 25-30 minutes from salt water. Can I use this on existing grass of a different type or does it have to be Centipede Grass. I am not sure what kind of grass I have. I am planning on using Hi-Yield Weed and Feed 15-0-10 first, as I have severe issues with weeds and dirt patches in the front yard and there is also noticeable sand as well as lots of snails. I am also thinking of applying Centipede Grass seed in hopes it will work. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. Thank you very much.
