Zoysia – When To Cut It

Q: My zoysia sod was put down around the first of March. It has mostly greened up and growing. Do I need to cut it now or wait?

A: If the grass is more than two inches high then set your mower to that height and mow it now. Eventually it will fill in uniformly and you can mow it every week at that height. If you haven’t fed it, apply a starter fertilizer now and then regular lawn fertilizer in July. Be sure to water afterwards.
