Apply a slow-release, high nitrogen fertilizer to Zoysia in the spring when it is coming out of its dormant state and is about 50% green. Apply a second application about eight weeks later. In mid to late October, apply a winterizer to your Zoysia lawn to help prevent winter injury. I use a 3-1-2 ratio of NPK such as a 21-7-14 or similar. Vigoro Ultra Turf Turf Fertilizer or Scotts Turf Builder are usually on sale at this time of year.
