How long should you cut Zoysia grass?

Warm-season grasses such as zoysia grass, should be mowed a minimum of once a week during the growing season. More frequent mowing may be required when growth is most active or if choosing a shorter cut. Mow frequently enough so that you remove no more than one- third of the total plant height in one mowing.
