Zoysia Maintenance

Water Needs

Low to medium apply at least 1 inch of water as a deep soaking every 4 to 7 days to encourage a deep, root system during dry or hot periods.  Avoid frequent, shallow watering that results in shallow roots, permitting weed germination and growth.

Mowing and Thatching

Optimum mowing height ½ to 1-½ inches for a high quality lawn, slow growth rate reduces mowing frequency.  Mow regularly with a sharp rotary or reel mower, allowing clippings from frequent mowing to remain on the lawn. Never remove more than 1/3 of the shoot growth at one mowing.  Periodic vertical cutting may be needed to control thatch accumulation if high nitrogen is applied.

Soil and Fertilizer Needs

Tolerates high salinity and infertile soil relatively well.  Fertilize twice a year, spring and fall, with a complete fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphate and potassium- apply at 2 to 4 lbs. Per 1000 sq feet per year.  Water thoroughly after fertilization.

Disease, Weed and Insect Control

Some varieties have good resistance to disease such as rust and leaf spot, and to billbugs.  The dense turf produced by Zoysiagrass prevents most weeds from appearing.
