  • Asked by William from Gillette, New Jersey
    02/02/2018
    Q
    Will it hurt to aerate my Zenith Zoysia grass lawn?
    I aerate my lawn every year and plant new seed. If I do this with Zoysia grass will it hurt my lawn?
    A

    No, aerating will not hurt the Zenith Zoysia grass. The best time to aerate Zoysiagrass is in early summer, when the grass is growing rapidly. On very compacted soils, aerating twice a year would not be out of the question. Apply fertilizer and water after aerating so the turf recovers rapidly.

  • Asked by Dollie from Greeneville Tn 37743
    09/20/2018
    Q
    My backyard is fescue. I want to kill the fescue and sow zoysia. What do I kill the fescue grass with?
    A

    You can use any Roundup product to kill the Fescue quickly and allow you to reseed with the Zoysia within 1-2 weeks usually at most. Keep in mind that zoysia seed is best put down in the spring as it thrives on warmer weather where as in the fall you normally seed with cool season grasses that thrive in the cooler temps like Fescue and bluegrass.

    Q
    Can you plant Zenith Zoysia Grass Seed over St. Augustine grass?

    Q
    Does Zoysia look like Bermuda?
    A
    We would not be able to accurately describe the differences in Zoysia and Bermuda grass to help you determine what kind of lawn you have. However if you contact your local Master Gardner or bring them a sample of your lawn, they should be able to help you make this identification and what methods are best for treating it and keeping it healthy.

  • Asked by Paul from Cape Cod, Ma
    01/23/2020
    Q
    Can you burn dormant zoysia grass to dethatch it?
    A

    If you have experience with burning the dormant turf, then it can be very good for a zoysia lawn to be top-burned about every 5 years. This process will release nitrogen and phosphorous nutrients into the soil and create a very green lawn when it grows back. If you are using any pre-emergents, then you would not put down pre-emergent until after this process. However, since burning can be very dangerous, we do not recommend that homeowners attempt this kind of treatment. This would need to be performed by experienced professionals and may not be allowed in all areas.
