First, some facts about Zoysia Grass: It can take zoysia two years to fill in your lawn. Once established, zoysia is very drought-tolerant. Here's how to care for it: In general, fertilize with 3-4 lbs of nitrogen per 1000 sq ft per year. Apply no more than 1 lb at a time - space your feedings 2-3 months apart, starting in late spring. Mow 1-2" high - it's hard to mow if you let it grow higher. Water deeply every week. Once zoysia is established, you can water less often. For now, all you need to do is water and mow. Feed in late March or early April. Enjoy!
