Lawn Maintenance Pros
Zoysia grass is sometimes labeled as a miracle grass in that it is extremely resilient and very thick, which helps to choke out weeds competing for resources. It is also very drought tolerant. It will go dormant in drought conditions and then spring back to life after watering or rain. While it is a slow-growing grass, it is wonderfully adapted to grow well in the Southern states due to its heat tolerance and drought resistance. It typically stays green much longer than Bermuda grass lawns.
About Zoysia Turf
This variety of grass is difficult to grow from seed, so it is best established by laying sod. Unlike most other types of turf, which recommend laying sod in fall, zoysia grass should be planted in late spring after the last threat of frost has passed. After establishment, this type of turf develops very deep roots and a very thick mat. It does this by spreading both above-ground through stolons and below ground through rhizomes. Not only does this help with drought resistance, but it also allows it to stand up to heavy foot traffic.
Zoysia Lawn Care
Zoysia lawn care is a little bit different than caring for other types of grasses. Because of the very thick carpet of grass, few weeds can penetrate it. However, the downside of such dense turf means that it needs to be carefully dethatched regularly to prevent diseases and fungal infections. Mow this variety of grass short to help prevent thatch development–it should generally be cut between 3/4″ and 2″ tall. Fertilize with a light hand with zoysia–less is typically more. An application of fertilizer a few weeks after the last expected frost will usually last through May. During the summer growing season, fertilizer should be carefully applied every 4-8 weeks. In the fall and winter, using nitrogen fertilizers is not recommended in zoysia lawn care routines unless the grass has been overseeded recently. It should be aerated with a core aerator in early spring after emerging from dormancy.
