Apply 2 to 4 lbs. of slow-release nitrogen per 1,000 square feet annually. Too much fertilizer creates a thatchy, unhealthy lawn. Make sure to use fertilizer labeled specifically for zoysia lawns.
Apply 1 inch of water per week.
Maintain a cutting height of 1 to 1 1/2 inches by mowing every 7 to 10 days. Make sure your mower blades are smart. Can be mowed with a standard rotary mower, but the lawn looks better when mowed with a reel mower.
