The Q&A Archives: Lawn care grass

Question: I have zoshia grass in sunny areas on sandy and coral ground. Grass does not retain moisture long enough to do any good.

Answer: It's difficult to keep sandy soil moist so you may want to try simply spreading a half inch of compost or peat moss over the turf. Water it in well and allow the zoysia to grow above it, then spread more over the top. A couple of years of adding compost or peat moss will help your soil retain more moisture and help your lawn grow lush and thick.
