I live in Savannah GA with a Bermuda lawn. 99% of neighborhood has centipede. Problem is that centipede seems to be trying to taking over my lawn. I prefer the hardiness and texture of the bermuda. Is there anything I can put down to stop the centipede growth?

I would landscape a bed of mulch and low shrubs on each side of the yard creating a barrier, maybe even with some landscaping timber or something like that. I'm sure your HOA & neighbors would approve

I have a pretty nice barrier. I already have centipede trying to establish it throughout the yard though. Is there anything that I can apply to kill out the centipede without harming the bermuda? Thanks...

You can use MSMA on bermuda which you can get at most Garden Centers. I am fairly sure that MSMA will KILL centipede dead. Make sure when applying this or any other herbicide there is little to no wind - you don't want your neighbors showing up on your doorstep! Use the rate as specified on the label - don't over do it. I believe MSMA has arsnic in it, so make sure you are careful and wash up thoroughly afterward, including your sprayer, etc....
