Lawn_MowerFor those that have Amazoy zoysia grass you know that mowing is no longer a huge chore. Amazoy zoysia grass is a slow growing grass and requires infrequent mowing. However, proper mowing practices are necessary to maintain an Amazoy zoysia lawn that is the envy of any neighborhood

Whether you use a rotary or reel mower, the key step in proper mowing is to make sure your mower blade is sharp. If you use a dull blade this will just rip the grass and not cut it. Your mower blade should be sharpened about every 8 mows or once per year. If the grass is not properly cut it can lead to the tips turning yellow the day after mowing.

The recommend height for zoysia grass is around 2 inches. You should never remove more than 1/3 of the blade. What that means is if you maintain your zoysia lawn at 2 inches once the grass reaches 3 inches it is time to mow, you only want to remove 1 inch of the blade.

You can measure the mowing height by setting the mower on a flat surface, making sure all four wheels are at the same setting. Then measure the distance between the ground and blade.

It is advisable to change the mowing direction. If you’ve mowed in horizontal lines a few times, change it up and mow in a vertical pattern. Switching directions with each mow will help your lawn to avoid a build up of thatch and stay healthy and beautiful!

    I bought 1500 plugs in March ’15. Plugged all of them within 8 days of receiving them. Was so excited about, hopefully getting grass growing in my back yard. Only 1/2 of them grew!! Don’t know what happened but I was SO Dissapointed!! Maybe they will pop-up next year. Really feel bad about no grass.

  2. I am sorry to hear that only part of your order took a good roothold and started producing new green blades of grass. Our nationally advertised guarantee is to replace any plug that fails to green up within 45 days of planting. Your plugs are still covered under our guarantee. I will have someone from our Customer Service Department contact you about replacing the plugs that did not take.

    I bought Zoysia from you last fall. The advertising information said it would be shipped according to our weather (not a quote, I don’t remember the exact wording). After ordering, our area had a cold spell forecast that was supposed to last for a while. My order was shipped shortly after that forecast. It arrived when it was too cold to plant it. After waiting a week to see if it would get warmer, I finally had to plant it anyway so it would not die in the box. It remained cold for a long time. So far, this spring, it appears that probably at least half, if not more, did not make it through the winter. I know you probably can’t check the weather forecasts for every order you ship out, but I must admit I was very frustrated that my order arrived during a very cold stretch of weather. I’m not asking for compensation, or even replacement; just venting my frustration.

    We regret hearing that the weather conditions when you received your plugs was too cold for the plugs to be completely successful. We try to monitor the weather as much as we can, however we cannot check the weather for each individual order. We usually try to follow the normal weather patterns and general forecast for each state. One of our Customer Service Representatives will be in contact with you to see what we can do about the failed plugs.
