Amazoy Meyer Zoysia grows in all types of soil. The top three types of soil are sand, silt and clay. All plants need nutrients to grow for a viable successful planting. It is best to find out what type of soil you have before planting and make any adjustment to the soil to insure success.
Sand soil is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles. Sandy Soil is light, warm, dry and tends to be acidic and low in nutrients. Sandy soils have good drainage, but low water and nutrient retention
Silt is a naturally occurring loose sedimentary material with very tiny rock particles. Silty soil is a light and moisture retentive soil.
Clay soil is comprised of very fine mineral particles and not much organic material. Clay Soil is a heavy soil type that benefits from high nutrients. The soil is quite often sticky has poor drainage but holds nutrients and water.
It is best to do a soil test or a ph test of the soil approximately 30 days before you plant new Zoysia Plugs. The ph level is best at between 6 – 7. This is to find out the activity of your soil, what nutrients already exist in your soil. We carry both the soil test and the ph test available for purchase. Fertilizer helps unlock the nutrients in your soil, while adding other nutrients. Zoysia can be grown in any type of soil and is successful in all three. Fine tuning soil will enhance the result.
