My home is built on two acres of land that used to be a cornfield. Two years ago when I built my home, I did not till under and level out the two acres as a lawn. I am now ready to attempt to do this. I live in southern Georgia and have been told that Centipede grass would grow very well in my area. My questions are: If I till under the weed and wild Bermuda grass combination that is currently growing in my yard and throw out Centipede grass seeds, will I have the Centipede lawn that I want, or will it be a mixture of wild Bermuda, Centipede, and weeds? Do I need to spray something to kill the currently growing weeds and wild Bermuda grass before I till it under? If so, what? Also, about how many pounds of Centipede seeds will it take to spread over two acres of land?
It will most likely be a mixture. It would be best to treat the area after tilling with Roundup 2-3 weeks before planting the seed. This article will help you with the amount you need:

Our front lawn is centipede. One-half of the lawn is sunny and doing extremely well. The other half is shady, and the majority of the centipede has died out. My question is what type of grass (sod) should we use for the shady side? We live in Little River, SC.
Creeping Red fescues or St. Augustine grass should work well in that area for shade.
I would like to know what weed and other grass killer I can apply to centipede grass and what kind of fertilizer to use.
Herbicides that contain Atrazine work well for weed control in centipede grass.
As far as fertilizer, twice a year (spring and fall) application of a turf fertilizer will work well. Any more than that and the grass will actually get unhealthy.
