    trimec or another 3way weed control will work. its still not too late put down Dimension pre-m if you want to.

    Agreed. Put down a granular pre-emerg, then come back on top with a broadleaf herbicide. We're very pro-Trimec on Bermuda and Zoysia.

    While your Zoysia is in the greenup phase as it is now, avoid applying the broadleaf herbicides at high rates.

    For example, Trimec 992 should go no more than 1 oz per thousand. If you can get away with 0.75 oz that would be better. Be sure and use a surfactant. If you are buying homeowner products, this is similar to Weed-B-Gone.

    Temps are rising to the 80s this weekend, spray it now if possible.
