Also asked, how often should Zoysia grass be cut?

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.

what is the best height to cut Zoysia grass? You will not need to mow nearly as often because zoysia doesn't grow tall quickly. A healthy zoysia lawn should be mowed to a height of 1 1/2" to 3". A golden rule when mowing any turf is "never cut more than 1/3 of the leaf height."

Considering this, how do you treat new Zoysia sod?

Fertilize according to the table below and according to soil test recommendations. Apply between 2 and 4 pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet annually, during the growing season. Select a fertilizer that is labeled for use on Zoysia grass lawns. Do not apply fertilizer to wet turf to avoid burning.

Should you fertilize zoysia grass in the fall?

Zoysia grass should not be fertilized in early spring or fall. Fall fertilizer (after August) can delay the natural dormancy period of warm-season grasses and make them more susceptible to winter injury.
