What Are These Vines Growing In My Zoysia Grass:?

runner white backgroundIf you have a Zoysia lawn this is what you want to see! These vines are called stolons. Please do not cut or pull them out! This is one of the ways this type of grass spreads and fills in.

The stolon, often called a “runner”, is growing from the main plant. About every inch on the runner there is a small cluster. These clusters will eventually take a roothold and start to produce another plant. When the stolons finally come into contact with other stolons they will fill in the lawn making the grass thicker and hand holding runnerfuller.

If the runners start to invade an area you do not want grass, such as, trying to grow over your sidewalk, driveway or in your flower bed, then you would need to trim or cut them. The cut stolon can even be replant in other areas you may want to add more grass too. Be sure the soil is loosened when replanting the runners and the little clusters are making contact with the soil. The runner will eventually take a roothold and start forming new plants.

Zoysia: Solution for Spreading

posted on February 15th, 2010 by

Sometimes Amazoy Zoysia can be a little, well, eager. It is a spreading grass and sometimes finds its way into flowerbeds, gardens, and neighbor’s yards (in which case it might help the whole neighborhood look great). But maybe you don’t want it in your garden and maybe your neighbor doesn’t want it in his yard.

No problem, there is an easy solution. Inserting plastic or metal borders inserted about 6” into the ground will keep the grass from spreading in places where it isn’t wanted. Here at Zoysia Farms, we recommend Easy-Edge® lawn edging. The flexible and easy to install plastic edging will take care of any unwanted spreading.
