Your Zoysia Lawn and Pre-emergents


posted on April 14th, 2011 by

While Zoysia grass is incredibly resilient and can choke out many weeds on its own, it is not entirely immune to the occasional weed.

From time to time, you may be faced with a weed – Not to worry!  Many weeds can be taken care of quickly with a product like Weed Be Gone or a water-soluble component.  However, if you find yourself faced with weeds from the crabgrass family, you’ll need to use a pre-emergence product that will kill the seeds before they have a chance to germinate.  It is extremely important that you do not combine a pre-emergent with a weed and feed or fertilizer or use a product that contains both – This combination of chemicals could be detrimental to the health and beauty of your lawn.

For the best results, pre-emergence products should be used in early spring and again in the fall.

To prevent weeds and keep your Zoysia lawn healthy, mow at a higher height, water less and aerate your lawn annually.  To retard weed growth, mow your lawn more frequently during the spring months.
