Zoysia Mowing Aeration and Dethatching
Mowing recommendations for Zoysia are 1 to 2 inches. I don’t recommend too low as this invites weeds with a any lawn. A 1½” cut is probably ideal to produce the best looking lawn. Since Zoysia e is a slow grower you do not need to mow it as frequently as other lawns, so cutting it short wont help much in terms of extending the amount of time between mowing.
It is recommended that the lawn be core aerated once a year, Zoysia can be aerated anytime during the growing season but it is recommended that it be done during early summer when growth is at it’s peak. Following aeration with fertilization and Lime for Optimal results.
