Emerald Zoysia

A proven winner in the Gulf Coast region with a dark green emerald color.

CHARACTERISTICS

Emerald Zoysia is a hybrid variety offering a dark emerald green color and a finer more wiry blade texture. It has a low growth habit which requires less mowing and stands up well to foot traffic. When properly maintained it forms a dense turf that is very effective in choking out weeds. It is a proven winner in the Gulf Coast region and also has better cold tolerance than Centipede and St. Augustine. You will not be disappointed with this grass.

WATERING

Newly planted Emerald Zoysia should be watered daily and soaked thoroughly to a depth of 3 inches for the first two weeks to avoid dry out. Then reduce the amount of water being applied but maintain the daily frequency for another two weeks or until the lawn is established. Once it is established, watering needs will vary based upon the type of soil present. It is always best to mimic the environment by watering heavily every few days rather than watering lightly every day. For sandier soils, 3/4 of an inch per watering will completely saturate the soil and everything else will simply percolate through. For heavier clay soils, you can water up to 2 inches at a time before saturation is reached. For this reason, heavier soils should be watered heavily but less frequently (every 3-4 days) and sandy soils will need less water but more frequency (every 2-3 days).

MOWING

An established Emerald Zoysia lawn should be mowed every 10 to 14 days during the growing season with optimum mowing height of 1 to 2 inches. Remove clippings from the lawn to avoid thatch build-up. Thatch build-up is the most serious issue with Emerald Zoysia. Frequent mowing with clipping removal will help prevent thatch accumulation.

MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

An established Zoysia lawn should be fertilized with 0.4 to 0.8. lbs of Nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. per growing month. A slow release organic fertilizer works best.

    * Woerner recommends annual pH testing and adjustment in accordance with soil test recommendations.

    * Any suitable organic based fertilizer may be subsituted for any single scheduled application.

    * Supplemental Iron applications can yield deep green color.

    * Routine scheduled application of insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides are recommended to aid in the prevention of weeds, insects and disease.

    * Product combinations of fertilizer and weed control may be utilized but Woerner recommends separate applications to target specific issues as they occur.

    * Chinch Bugs are typically active during the months June thru Sept. Monitor and apply appropriate pesticide as lable recommends.

    * Application of pesticides are indicated during summer months as these months are when pest issues are most likely to be exposed. These applications may or may not be necessary depending on individual situations.
