Newly Planted Zoysia

How To Seed Zoysia In Lawns & Golf Courses

Instructions on how to successfully establish a golf course or lawn from seeds. While this information is about the planting of Zenith Zoysia, the basic information will apply to both Zenith and Compadre seeding.

Also read how to convert a cool season lawn to a zoysia grass lawn.

WARNING:

  • Do not seed Zenith if a pre-emerge herbicide has been applied within the previous 60 days
  • Do Not Over Water
  • Reduce fertility as suggested once turf cover is accomplished

HOW TO CORRECTLY PLANT ZOYSIA SEEDS

  1. Lime to pH of 6.0-7.0 (Apply 1000 lbs of dolomitic lime if no soil test is available.)
  2. Apply a starter Fertilizer at rate of 400 lbs. / acre (10-10-10 is a good choice). (9 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.)
  3. Incorporate, by tilling or similar method to a dept of 4-6 inches and remove any debris, sticks or stones.
  4. Drag Smooth
  5. Using a drop or broadcast spreader -- Uniformly spread Zoysia seeds at 70 to 100 pounds of Zenith Zoysia seed per acre.  If using a mechanical slit seeder, plant at 2 inch centers for best results.  Seeding rates are higher for Compadre seed.
  6. Rake lightly and roll smooth to insure good seed soil contact.
  7. DO NOT COVER (BURY) SEED more than 1/4 inch (6mm) deep.  Light is necessary for germination to occur and covering the seed too deep will result in problems.  Try for a 1/8 to 1/4 inch coverage.
  8. Irrigate to keep soil moist (two to three times daily / minimum) for the first 14 to 21 days OR until seedlings are observed germinating.
  9. After seedlings have emerged, irrigate to keep good moisture in the soil to a depth of one inch (NO standing water).
  10. DO NOT OVER WATER! Too much water will retard the growth of seeded zoysia grasses and encourage seedling diseases.
  11. Once seedlings have emerged, apply a starter fertilizer such as 5-10-15 or simarlar analysis at the rate of 400 pounds per acre. (9 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft)
  12. Next apply 100 pounds of Ammonium Nitrate per acre every 2 to 3 weeks until turf has covered. (Approximately 2 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft).
  13. Avoid application of fertilizers high in nitrogen in the late fall.
  14. For established turf (year 2 and beyond), apply the equivalent of 1 pound of nitrogen every 2 to 4 growing months as a slow release or organic balanced fertilizer. Use a fertilizer based on soil test results.
  15. Pre-emergent chemicals can be applied after seedling emergence (at least 3 weeks after seedlings emerge) in accordance with product label directions. Spring and Fall applications of weed and feed products on established turf is encouraged. Look for a product labeled for use on Zoysia grass.

READ MORE ON PLANTING ZOYSIA SEEDS

SEED USE NOTICE: Please note that we ONLY recommend Zoysia seeds for use in bare soil areas. Planting seeds into existing grasses has a HIGH FAILURE rate. If planting into an existing lawn (grass and/or weeds) we recommend that you consider using Zoysia Zoysia Grass plugs instead of seeds. - Zoysia seeds also are difficult to achieve germination in low light / shady areas. Use plugs in these areas for best results.

MOWING - Fairway Heights and Lawns

  • If mowing with a reel mower begin mowing at 1 inch as soon as grass or weeds can be cut (Same with rotary).
  • Continue mowing at 1 inch if you wish to maintain at this height. For tees / fairways you can gradually reduce to 12/ to 3/4 inch heights until grown-in. Always use a sharp mower blade. Zoysia will require less mowing than Bermuda (As many as 10 times less in a normal year).
