HOW TO ATTEMPT TO KILL A ZOYSIA LAWN:

A Glyphosphate such as Roundup® is your first & best weapon to kill out a zoysia lawn.

You need to make sure the zoysia is growing juicy and lush and green, before spraying. Very critical when trying to kill any of the warm climate grasses, to make sure they are actively growing or else the plant will not absorb much of the Glyphosphate.  Most people think they are trying to kill the grass, so watering and feeding it is the last thing comes to their minds. But, if the zoysia is stressed for water and fertilizer or it is too early in the year so it is not growing much, the spray is a waste of money and time as the grass plants will not absorb the poison spray while they are semi- or fully dormant.

And, even with all this, it is still most likely they will need to spray two or more times to get full kill. Spray once and leave the grass alone for a week or two to allow full absorption and transfer to the roots of the poison.  Then rake and mow off the dead grass, and immediately water well and deeply to see if any is left alive to re-grow. Repeat as necessary. Once any remaining stems green up and are lush again, spray again on those patches and repeat the wait period. This is usually enough to wipe out any persistent warm climate grass.

Some extension agents recommend (and I have heard this from turf care professional also) to add some fertilizer to the spray tank, and also some sort of a surfactant. The liquid fertilizer (even dissolved Miracle Grow works) stimulates the grass plants to absorb more poison, and to continue active growth so the poison can act more effectively. The surfactant (a few tablespoons of liquid dish soap is a cheap substitute) will allow the spray to spread and stick on the leaf surface, rather than just beading up and running off before it is absorbed. Last thought, and this is based on success that Bermuda seed growers have when they are discontinuing an old field and converting it to lettuce, etc. production. They till the field up in mid winter and leave the soil clumps and roots and rhizomes exposed. Any winter freeze will help knock the grass and kill more of it. Then usually they will till the soil a couple of more times in winter to keep exposing new portions of rhizomes and crowns.

BOTTOM LINE: Is that Zoysia because of its deep and persistent root system (Rhizomes) is VERY DIFFICULT to get a complete kill on.  Good Luck!
