Zoysia – Thin Due to Cold Spring
Q: My Zeon zoysia lawn sod was put down in August. I did it using the recommendations from your web site. The grass is not coming back this spring, even though I’m watering it. Do you have any recommendations?
A: May is still early for zoysia to be greened-up fully. And your sod was put down a little late, plus we had lots of cold, cloudy weather this winter. Both are not good for zoysia establishment.
I see some green-up just starting in your photos. I don’t think it needs watering unless you go four days without rain. Fertilize when 90% green and report back in mid-June.
