Say Goodbye to Weeds


posted on October 6th, 2010 by

One of the many benefits of growing a Zoysia lawn is its ability to easily choke out weeds. Zoysia is even considered to be a “weed fighter” grass, keeping your lawn healthy lush and weed free.

How does this work? Zoysia grows with a horizontal stem called a rootstalk (stolons). This growth pattern allows Zoysia to grow and spread over an area, overgrowing any weeds or unwanted crab grasses. The thick, firm, and dense turf prevents new weeds from sprouting and takes over existing weed growth. The leaves of the grass grow freely in the summer, and after a few mowings can crowd out weeds all together. Because of this, less herbicide is needed to maintain a plush and green Zoysia lawn.

Should a weed happen to pop up in your Amazoy lawn, read more about on the spot weed removal. We hope you enjoy your beautiful Zoysia lawn!

    Sue – If it is really a fungus, applying a fungicide should clear it up.
