Caring for Zoysia Grass Mowing When grass has grown to at least 1/3 of an inch higher than the recommended height of 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches (i.e., grass has grown to 3 inches tall versus a recommended height of 2 inches), begin mowing. The dense growth pattern of zoysia grass, combined with mowing, will keep weeds at bay. Additional Care Tips Avoid removing more than 1/3 of the total grass blade length at any single mowing to keep your grass thick and healthy. Increase your mowing height in summer months to reduce grass stress. Remove thatch on a periodic basis as it accumulates. Excessive thatch can block water, sun and fertilizer from reaching the soil. Remove thatch in early spring before the grass begins to turn green again. Remove thatch by raking or mowing with a bagger once you have completed dethatching. CautionWhen using lawn treatments or lawn care products, always follow package directions regarding proper clothing, protective equipment, application procedures and safety precautions.
