Watering Needs of Your Zoysia Grass


posted on July 28th, 2010 by

SprinklerIn order to keep your Zoysia lawn looking fresh and healthy, it’s important to make sure your grass is receiving the right amount of water.

When to Water Zoysia
The best time to water your lawn is in the morning, preferably before noon. This allows the grass to dry before nightfall, reducing the risk of disease.

One benefit of Zoysia grass is its ability to stay thick and green with much less water than many other types of grasses, helping you save on your water bill! Amazoy will require up to 80% less irrigation than other types of grass, and will only need supplemental watering if there has been little rainfall.

A good way to test if your grass needs watering is to look at the surrounding ground. If the dirt is dry and cracking, its time to water your Zoysia grass. Be sure to avoid over watering, because excessive watering can damage the roots. If you have questions, check out our Moisture Meter to determine your grass’ watering needs.

Moisture of Zoysia
To maximize growth of Zoysia grass, the plug roots should not be saturated. Because Zoysia’s vigorous root system is so deep and extensive, once the lawn becomes established, little, if any, supplemental watering will be needed to maintain your lawn.

Try these items geared specifically for watering your Zoysia lawn.

    There may be a few reasons why your grass is turning brown, but first we must understand where you live and the set up of your yard to diagnose the problem. What region of the United States do you live in? Has your area been through a drought? How much have you been watering? Does your entire yard receive sunlight throughout the day? Once we know the answers to these questions, we can better help with your problem.
