I will never take on another one. It is tough work and worse if you have clay soils.
It will look a lot better cut back.. alot
It would be best not to divide when it’s actively growing/blooming. You could wait until
next early spring after it’s been cut back for the season, when you notice new growth.The area looks large now,
but is substantially smaller once you can see & reach the interior. A decent shooter shovel,tarp & a few
bags of garden soil to fill if needed.
Silly question here. I don’t like it at all. I recommend to take it out. Is it possible to kill it and have the Zoysia fill inn without digging the beast out?
It’s pretty resilient! A good dose of esplanade ez with some extra imazypr might do the trick, you just have to get it all, that’s the hard part!
Another caveat. I didn’t realize until a second look that the current grass is actually three grasses planted around this utility box (not sure what kind) as a screen. How would you proceed?
Thanks for your advice.
You can cut it to the ground, or slightly below, when new growth appears spray it. The grass will creep in or you can sod it.
The owners want something planted there to screen the utility box.
Have you considered just trimming it or tying it up?
Like another person said, i would wait until late fall/early winter when it goes dormant and cut it WAY back. Ive trimmed lots of over grown pompus grass and have had good luck with butchering it when it goes dormant. If you want to dig it out, well, good luck. They are a pain in the butt to remove. I've done a few over the years but will never do it again.
