    I’m in coastal AL. This is an area of my lawn that stays pretty damp. It’s always last part of the yard to dry and I have historically had trouble since I laid the sod keeping this turf lush and thick like in the other areas of the yard. Our property backs up to a wooded swampland and in August...

    I'd appreciate help identifying what the issue with my Zoysia is. It's happening in 2 areas of the lawn, and appeared a few months after we had the sod put in. Could it be chinch bugs or some type of organic issue? TIA for any help identifying and how to fix it.

    My Geo Zoysia installed in April. Just about every morning I have a new bloom of mushrooms in the center of the lawn. I've been hand pulling to date but it is quite an annoyance. Any suggestions?
  4. Lawn Mowing
    I just got a new customer (Florida, central on east coast) who is a snowbird and is absentee. He came back for a brief visit and his former lawn crew was fired. I'm hired. Former crew let Zoysia get to be 5.5" high. I have 2 big zero turns, 1 walker, 2 push and 1 reel. How do I get the...

    Hi all - I'm located in Atlanta and previous owner of the house removed a couple large pine straw beds and planted Zenith rather than the Emerald that was already established in the rest of the yard which led to different green up color and different dormancy period. I had the Zenith removed...

    I'm hoping someone could shed some light on my ideas. Short background- I live in Lafayette, La with an Empire Zoysia lawn. I sodded my small front yard (~600 sqft) almost a year ago today. The sod took very well, but, even when it was just put down, the height of cut has been a concern of...

    Has anyone tried the dethatching kit for Toro Greensmaster ???

    I selected Geo Zoysia for approximately 1,000 sq ft of my front yard primarily because of the supposed shade tolerance compared to Emerald. There are a few oak trees on the adjacent property that provide some shade during part of the day on one corner of the lawn but I think I will have enough...

    I purchased a home a few years back (Central Texas) with buffalo grass installed about 50% of the front yard, the other 50% was mostly dirt with a few small patches of various grasses. This past week I modified my irrigation system, tilled up the buffalo grass and loosened all the soil, and...

    Hi, I am in central Florida. I have couple empire zoysia lawns performing poorly. Even they are irrigated and fertilized well, leaves shrivel into needles under just few hours of direct sun light. The soil is typical Florida sugar sand with ph is at 6.4. The lawn is about 3 to 4 year old. It was...

    I’m new here and am in need of advice for my lawn. We laid zoysia sod last year. Now I’m ready to treat it but have heard varying opinions on pre emergent. I want the grass to get thick and deep roots yet I am worried about the weeds as I already see them appearing in spots. I am I. Georgia and...
  12. Introduce Yourself
    New to the forum. Lots of helpful information so I thought I would share my experiences as well. Have 17,000 ft.² of Geo Zoysia which was installed 12 months ago. Was wanting Zeon Zoysia but was not available at the time of needed sod installation so went with Geo zoysia as it sounded comparable...

    As far as I know there is nobody that reel mows around here. I would like to get a reel mower and start on my yard and see if I could develop a market. My yard is centipede but wanting to add a Bermuda or zoysia accent/play area that would be reel cut. I have several questions and am looking to...
  14. Turf Renovation
    We’ve been considering options to replace a lawn that died over the summer this year. Seems we have too much clay just south of DC in my area, and the tall fescues do not have enough root power to go deep enough to survive the sun on our west facing lawn (especially at 95+ degrees). The ground...
  15. Fertilizer Application
    Hey everyone. I'm a Chem Tech for a company in central Georgia. I've been spreading a 30-0-5, about 2.5 to 3 lbs per 1000 on key 13 to 14 in the lesco spreaders, on round 3 and now on round 4. I've been getting some strange brown spots and areas after the treatments on a few lawns and it seems...

    Hi. I used Ornamec Over The Top on my Zeon Zoysia on July 1st (today's date is 8-8-13) and I still have injured brown patches of Zoysia where I spot treated. I used the lower rate of application because it was mid summer hoping to avoid phytotoxicity. I live in Zone 7b in the Piedmont in NC and...

    I am looking for pros and cons to compare Ultimate Flora and Empire Zoysia for a resod of a lawn in NW Florida. 30% of the lawn is moderately shaded by high Southern Pines. It is a flat yard near the coast. Good irrigation. Thanks for any tips or experiences!
  19. Landscape Maintenance
    I think I'm asking a question that has been asked before, and I think I understand the ultimate answer to this, but I'd really like to figure out all my options. I have a customer who has a very shaded back yard, and wants to deal with the dirt/mud problem. They have two dogs (small and large)...
