I'm considering getting into growing some Zoysia lawns. I know my cool-season stuff, but I'm still learning about the warm season stuff. I hear that most people sprig the zoysia, but it seems easier to find zoysia seed around here. Does anyone have experience with either method of planting? I'm in Zone 7. This is what I'm thinking off, tell me if I'm way off... Core aerate and/or slice seed in May, add a higher P fert (starter) 18-24-12 or 10-10-10, 20-10-10 etc. Do I need a pre-emergent? if so what is the best one for zoysia? I usually use dimension on fescue. Apply 14-0-14 or 19-0-19 or similar fertilizers throughout summer, preferably ammonium sulfate, and potassium sulfate? taper off the nitrogen a month or so to prepare the turf for dormancy. Do you get good results with overseeding dormant zoysia with ryegrass? Or would improved bermuda be a better choice? Or I could always just paint the turf green for winter. Any thoughts or suggestions from you warm season guys?
