The Q&A Archives: Fertilizer for zoysiagrass

Question: There are dandelions and some crabgrass in my zoysiagrass, how do I get rid/prevent them without damaging the grass? Also, what fertilizer will work, I am in Long Island NY.

Answer: 16-4-8 + Iron is a good fertilizer for zoysiagrass. Most broadleaf weed killers are safe to use on zoysia but be sure to read the labels - zoysia grass should be listed as one of the grass types on the safe list.
