Zoysia – Not As Green As Expected

Q: I have six thousand square feet of Zeon zoysia in my front yard installed 2011. My lawn has been the envy of the neighborhood. Usually by now my lawn is in the 95% greened-up. But, so far it’s only 50% green at best.

A: Lots of zoysia lawns in metro Atlanta were zapped by cold weather but I see fully green zoysia lawns all the time. All you can do is water and feed appropriately and wait for the grass to recover. Zoysia is slower to spread than bermudagrass, so be patient. Water appropriately and don’t try to push things along with extra fertilizer.
