How To Seed Zoysia Lawns - Zenith & Compadre

SEEDING ZOYSIA SEED: (Applies to Zenith & Compadre)
Use a drop or broadcast spreader to uniformly spread 45 to 90 lbs of Zenith seeds per acre (1-2 lbs. / per 1000 sq. ft.). If using a mechanical slit seeder, plant at 2 inch (50mm) WIDE centers for best results. Slit seeders correctly set for planting depth can also be used.

If seeds are broadcast, rake or drag lightly and roll planted soil area with a lawn roller to insure good seed to soil contact. So NOT bury seeds more than 1/4 inch deep (6 mm). Light is a necessary factor in order for Zoysia seeds to germinate. Planting too deep could result in NO germination occurring.

SEED USE NOTICE: Please note that we ONLY recommend Zoysia seeds for use in bare soil areas. Planting seeds into existing grasses has a HIGH FAILURE rate. If planting into an existing lawn (grass and/or weeds) we recommend that you consider using Zoysia Grass plugs instead of seeds. - Zoysia seeds also are difficult to achieve germination in low light / shady areas. Use plugs in these areas for best results.

WATERING: (During establishment phase):

  • Irrigate to keep soil moist (usually two to three times daily / more on hot summer days). for the FIRST 14 to 21 days or until seedlings are observed.
  • After seedlings have emerged, irrigate to keep good moisture in the soil to a depth of one inch (no standing water)
  • DO NOT OVERWATER! Too much water will retard Zoysia growth and encourage seedling diseases.

Fertilizer Suggestions For Establishing Zoysia Lawns:

Four (4), Eight (8) & twelve (12) weeks after planting apply 400 lbs per acre (about 9 lbs per 1000 sq. ft) of a 10-10-10 or 8-8-8 fertilizer.

Avoid application of fertilizers high in nitrogen in the late fall. For established turf (2 years and older), apply the equivalent of 1 pound of nitrogen every 2 to 4 growing months using a balanced fertilizer. You should determine the correct fertilizer based on a soil test. Contact your Cooperative Extension agent for help on this.

Mowing New Zoysia Lawns:

  • Mow lower areas if possible with a reel mower. The grass can be mowed with a rotary mower at higher levels. Begin mowing at 2 inches (50mm) height as soon as grass or weeds can be cut. If using a rotary mower you may want to continue cutting at 2 inch height. Reel mowers can be gradually reduced to 3/4 to 1/2 inch over time.

  • Zoysia generally requires 10 fewer mowings than the average Bermuda grass lawn.

  • Always use "SHARP" mower blades for best results. Zoysia is a tough grass that requires a clean cut to look good. Only sharp blades will give you this look.

DO NOT PLANT ZOYSIA SEED if a pre-emerge herbicide has been applied with the previous 60 days.  Do not use herbicides until after about 12 weeks of growth has occurred.
