Zoysia Grass
Q.

Pre/Post Emergent Weed/Grass Control

Anonymous added on March 14, 2012 | Answered

I have an Emerald zoysia lawn that is beginning its third season. It was planted from sod rolls. I'm in Dallas TX. Unwanted weed grasses, both broadleaf and undesirable grasses, like foxtail, are growing in the spaces between the rolls of sod. The zoysia is dormant now but with the rise in temperature will start greening up soon. These other grasses and weeds are popping up too. What can I use to get rid of them now and prevent any new growth without seriously damaging the zoysia?

I would have the soil tested to see what nutrients the soil may need and the pH. That being said, a weed and feed fertilizer will help reduce the weeds and give the lawn a good head start. This article will help:

Spot treating with Round-up will help with the weeds. Alternatively, you could try spot treating with natural weed killers, such as vinegar. The following article should be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/lawn-care/lgen/tips-for-improving-the-lawn-and-reducing-maintenance.htm
