Zoysia Grass

Bob added on March 2, 2011 | Answered

My lawn is already Zoysia grass but has several "thin" spots. It's not bad enough to re-sod, but is there something I can do to thicken it up? Can I add Zoysia seeds to the thin spots, or is there a frertilizer that will make it grow and cover the thin spots? I'm in The Villages, in Florida.

You can reseed, but if zoysia is getting thin, than either it is overshaded or it may have a fungus. I would check the grass in those areas for signs of a fungus and treat the fungus if you find one. Here is some information on common grass fungus:
