    I'm no expert, but have heard it's better not to fertilize zoysia too early...as it's a warm season grass.

    Probably around the end of April, depending on the yearly weather pattern - we are a little behind last year's pace, so that will make a difference in how soon zoysiagrass greens up.

    The thing is, right now a good deal of warm season grasses in Stl are still partially dormant.
