Seeding Zenith Zoysia with Soil³ Compost - Case Study

Zenith Zoysia grass seeds were planted July 17th using Soil³ in seedbed preparation and as a mulch after seeding.

This picture shows a remarkably full Zenith lawn after only three weeks. At this time, daily watering has been stopped and watering is reduced to 1" per week.

The picture below was taken on October 11th, three months after seeding. It shows a mature lawn that has been mowed several times and is hardening off for winter.

This lawn has not been fertilized, except for the use of Soil³ at planting time. Zoysia lawns should not be fertilized in the fall (i.e., avoid "winterizers"), but will be fertilized in the spring during green-up.

Please note that this planting of Zenith was rather late in the season, spring being the best time, after danger of last frost. However, Soil³ aids in germination and establishment and grows a warm season lawn in enough time for it to be mature and strong enough to withstand winter.
