Zoysia grass is one of the major summer annual weeds. A few effective remedies that I picked can control such weeds every summer.
I would recommend pre-emergent herbicides in the early spring if you need to control the weeds like Zoysia grass. One of my colleagues uses such herbicides mid-February (in the coastal area). Though, if you like in mountain areas, mid-March is the perfect time to apply such a weed killer. The second application must be done in 10 weeks after the first one. In such a way, you can control the annual growth of Zoysia grass and other summer weeds in your area.
Two methods of removing Zoysia grass:
- Chemical treatment with herbicides. If the area is heavily clogged with weeds, selective herbicides can be used – this is more efficient and less dangerous. The product is applied at places where the weeds accumulate in dry weather. The concentration recommended by the manufacturers must be strictly observed – too low a dose will not harm the weeds, too high a dose will damage the lawn;
- Manual weed control is considered to be more efficient, but in some cases is not applied due to the laborious nature of the work. Zoysia grass is removed from the damp ground – a few hours after the rain. Weed control on lawns is done with the help of special hoes and root removers;
