    I sowed Zoysia grass seed 3 weeks ago. Even though I sprayed with Round Up to kill the top growth before tilling I now have annual grass weeds growing in with the Zoysia seedlings. Is there a Herbicide I can use which will kill the weeds without harming the Zoysia. I looked at Quick Silver and the label said it could be used after 14 days but did not know if anyone else would have any advice. Thank you

    Take a look at the Drive XLR8 label.

    I am not sure where you are, but remember that frost will kill most of the summer weeds--and stop further growth of the zoysia, of course. Mowing will kill most of the taller type weeds.
