Zoysia Grass and fertilizing

Zone Raleigh,NC | fbwebb added on August 15, 2012 | Answered

What is the best time to fertilize and should I put some lime over the zoysia lawn with a broadcast spreader? I live near Raleigh, NC.

Also, when is it necessary to dethatch? I've read about the liquid de-thatcher. What do you recommend?

As for dealing with thatch, regular mowing helps to prevent thatch from accumulating throughout the lawn. It also helps to limit the amount of fertilizer used on zoysia grass. This article may help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/lawn-care/lgen/lawn-thatch-control.htm
