Hi all, this is my first post here, but have read a lot of the forum over the years. Anyway, I just put some empire zoysia sod down in my yard about three weeks ago. I have done all the necessary things to ensure proper rooting of the empire zoysia, but it has been a very long and tiring process of little to no growth. I know zoysia is one of the slowest growing turfs, but it has been three weeks and my sod has just recently taken root where I can no longer pull the sod up. I guess my questions are; how long does it take for the zoysia to start filling in gaps and start to spread? When should I apply fertilizer? I live in the Florida Panhandle, and am really looking forward to a lush green carpet of grass. I have posted a picture of what the sod looks like being three weeks installed. The sod you see pictured was just coming out of dormancy, but I still think I should be having some better results. Any tips/guidance would be appreciated. Thanks guys! Thanks!
