Zoysia – Proper Scalping
Q: When is the best time to scalp zoysia lawn after winter?
A: You can hasten the greenup of bermuda and zoysia lawns by removing the dead leaves after vigorous growth has begun. When your lawn is at least 50% green you can set your mower to cut the grass a half inch below the normal cut. Do not scalp a lawn that is not showing lots of green.
