Here’s a tip.


Water & Fertilization

Mowing Care

Seasonal Care


419 Bermuda

Do not apply excess nitrogen and create excess top growth in the turfgrass plants during the spring months. Creating excess top growth will affect the plants ability to develop a deep, extensive root system necessary for survival later during the summer months.

Tahoma 31 Bermuda

Tahoma has shown in the NTEP trials to be exceptionally cold hearty and resistant to winterkill, greening up nicely right next to other bermuda cultivars that have been killed completely due to the same weather.

It is important to consider this possible cost of replacement when deciding which cultivar to select for your golf course or sports field. While Tahoma may be a few cents a square foot more than common varieties, this pales in comparison to having to replace sod time after time due to winterkill.

Zeon Zoysia

Apply a granular pre-emergence herbicide such as Team 2G in early to mid February to prevent the emergence of spring weeds such as crabgrass. Late spring, summer and applications of pre-emergence herbicides are also recommended, and as stated above can be applied in combination with a fertilizer containing a weed preventer.

To kill weeds that have emerged post-emergence herbicides can be applied. Apply post-emergence herbicides only when weeds are present and make sure to wait until three weeks after the lawn is green. Be sure the product is labeled for use on Zoysia grass and always be careful to follow mixing and application instructions on product labels. Spot treating is recommended.

Ironcutter Bermuda

Once established, Ironcutter bermuda should receive approximately 1 inch of water per week during its growing season, by either rain or irrigation. Mature lawns should receive deep, infrequent waterings, approximately every 5 to 7 days, to promote a healthy, extensive root system.
