Care Of Zoysia Grass - Knowledgebase Question

Overland Park, KS
Question by CrayolaMan
August 4, 1998
I have just completed plugging my front and back yard with Meyers Z52 Zoysia plugs from a local sod farm. The plugs provided were about 2-3 inches deep. Some of the plugs have turned brown even with watering while others have stayed green. Is there anything to be concerned about? How should I care for my Zoysia yard? I spaced the plugs out about a foot apart (about 2,500 in total). Can white grubs harm Zoysia? What about chinch bug? Fertilizing? Where can I get a complete source of information for Zoysia? Any help would be appreciated. I am tired of fighting the problems with Blue grass here in the MidWest which is why I decided to switch to Zoysia.
Thanks,
Chuck Luchen

at a time - space your feedings 2-3 weeks apart, starting in late spring. Mow 1-2" high - it's hard to mow if you let it
grow higher. Once zoysia is established, you can water less often. I hope this helps you create the lawn you dream of! at a time - space your feedings 2-3 weeks apart, starting in late spring. Mow 1-2" high - it's hard to mow if you let it
