Zoysiagrass “A Choice for Your Lawn”

Published: Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 11:24 AM.

Untimate Fora is a zoysia japonica developed by the University of Florida. It has similar leaf texture and upright growth habits to Meyers but it has a faster rate of speed and better adoptability for use in Florida.

Zoysiagrasses can be established from seed, sprigs, plugs or sod. Zoysia Japonica is the only species that can be established from seed. Most of the Zoysia grass lawn that has been established in Gulf County has been done by sodding methods. The seeded should be finely pulverized, smooth, firm and weed-free prior to planting.

Fertilization and other cultural practices influence the overall health and quality of the lawn and reduced its vulnerability to numerous stresses, including weeds, insects and diseases.

For additional information on maintaining your Zoysia grass lawn, please contact your local county Extension Service at 639-3200.
