Zoysia Patch Close Up

Description: This photo shows a zoysia lawn with a disease called zoysia patch. It occurs in zoysia lawns in spring when cool wet weather is prevalent and can damage lawns and cause them to thin out. Since many times zoysia is being used in semi shaded areas, the damage will not repair itself once warmer drier weather arrives as it would in a fully sunlit yard. Critical to control is management of irrigation and keeping watering to a minimum during such times. Also, application of a fungicide will help control disease as well.

Winter Kill Bermuda

Description: This picture shows an area of Bermuda killed during the winter. The raised flower bed is surrounded by concrete as well as holding moisture. In a severe winter that combination is too much for a tropical grass like Bermuda and this can be the result. Luckily it did not all die and with enough sunlight was able to recover.

Dallisgrass in Zoysia

Description: This photo shows Dallisgrass in Zoysia turf. Unfortunately we do not have any way to pre-emerge or prevent this weed. To compound that, there is no selective herbicide which will kill it without damaging your lawn as well. Control of this weed is extremely difficult!

Virginia Buttonweed

Description: This is a very difficult weed since it cannot be pre-emerged for or prevented. There are however post emerge options that are very effective in gaining control.

Drought Stress Zoysia

Description: This picture shows zoysia turf in extreme drought stress. The sprinkler system had a gap and when the homeowner returned from vacation they weren’t sure what was going on. Adjusting a few rotors fixed this problem but it shows how clearly you can tell between healthy turf and turf in drought stress.
