Most of the zoysia is on average 2.5-3.25 minimum height and all being cut with a rotary mower. I've never seen anyone using anything your standard rotary around here. Some mowing company's have made it big by offering only push-mow service(again rotary) compared to the 700 #+ riders that everyone else uses, lots of Gravelys & Hustlers. Secondarily, everyone mulches it in, well tries to anyway. A friend of mine complains about Zoysia in that it is such a struggle to mulch in the clippings. 20 years back when I was 13 all the guys were bagging the SA & Bahia clippings & that was way before Zoysia down here.
