Removing Weeds from Zoysia Grass

posted on February 11th, 2010 by

What weeds?

Just kidding. We know that even though Amazoy Zoysia is good at choking out weeds because of its density and thickness, a few may pop up every now and then. No need to worry, this can be easily taken care of.

Using a weed killer will solve the problem. Weed Be Gone is an efficient product and a good place to start. Using this on your weeds will kill them without killing the grass itself. You can also check out our Hose-End Sprayer if you want to apply water-soluble components. But steer clear of Round-Up; it is designed to kill grass!

If you are attempting to get rid of crabgrass, the best solution is to attack it with a pre-emergence product that will kill the seeds before they germinate. Any product like this must be applied in the early spring.

So when (or should we say if?) weeds pop-up, maintenance is easy and simple. Just get the right product and your weeds will be taken care of and Amazoy Zoysia will help prevent them from coming back.

    1. Will your zoysia choke out Bermuda grass ?
    2. What is the right PH for zoysia?
    3. Neighbor has St. Augustine grass. If I plant zoysia, which will win the encroachment battle at the lot line??
    4. What is the difference between Meyer zoysia, and Amazoy Zoysia. Both names are mentioned in your ad.

    We do ship to Utah, meaning that we believe it can grow in the climate there. However, the deciding factor should be if your yard receives enough sunlight throughout the day. While zoysia can thrive without loads and loads of sunlight, it does need some exposure to grow. You should also note the best time of year for you to plant, which in your case would be between the months of April and August. Best of luck!

    1. Yes, Zoysia will choke out the Bermuda, as long as you don’t pamper the growth of the Bermuda.

    2. Ideally, your soil’s pH should be between 6 and 7. We have a blog post that will help shed more light on managing your pH, which you can find here:

    3. Zoysia is a spreading grass, so it would overtake the St. Augustine. To be safe, your best bet would be to install borders (lawn edging) to keep the two separate. Read more about our spreading solutions here:

    4. Meyer zoysia refers to Meyer Z-52 that was released by the USDA and the US Golf Association for commercial development in 1951. Amazoy is just another name for the same product.

    I have San Augustine Grass growing in my Zoysia grass in spots. How is the best way to get rid of the St. Augustine?

  6. admin on said:

    Billy – To answer your question we need a little more information first. Was the Augustine Grass already in your yard when you planted the Zoysia or has the Augustine since appeared in your Zoysia lawn? Also, is your Zoysia lawn full established, or is it still growing and filling in?

  7. I live in Ausitn, TX and I have a newly laid sod of palasaids zoysia in Oct. 2013. Now that it is March 2014 I have weeds everywhere. We were told not to fertilize or do anything besides water (restricted to 1 day a week) the first year of growth.
    1. Besides bending over and picking weeds for hours, what are my other options for weeds? 2. Should we do some kind of fertilizing for spring? If so what kind and how often?

  8. Hi Michellynn,
    Since the weeds have already emerged you can use a broadleaf post-emergent, we suggest something like Weed B Gon by Ortho, this weed killer is safe for zoysia grass. It is best to fertilize your zoysia lawn when it first greens up in the spring. If you are in an area that the zoysia stays green year round, sometime in April is a good time. Many granular fertilizers are harmful to zoysia grass, we recommend using a water soluble fertilizer and follow the label instructions. You may want to check out next blog post, we will be covering how to control weeds.

    I have compadre zoysia. It was hydro seeded a year ago and has come in great. What post emergent herbicide would you recommend? I am leaning towards acclaim extra to help keep the Bermuda held back.

  10. As long as you check the label and ensure that it is safe for zoysia grass and follow their recommeneded applications you should be fine. One of the post emergents that work well with zoysia grass is Weed B Gon.
