Weeds can be detrimental to lawns, stealing nutrients from your grass and dragging down your curb appeal. To keep your property free of weeds, you should invest in a weed control program. However, you need to be careful about when you apply weed control treatments, as the grass type that you have will dictate what type of treatments you should use and when you should apply them. If your lawn is comprised of zoysia grass, you will want to follow a strict weed control schedule. The ideal weed control schedule for lawns with zoysia grass in Georgia includes a combination of pre-and post-emergent weed control treatments applied in the winter, spring, summer, and fall seasons. Applying these treatments during these times of the year will help you achieve a lawn that is weed-free no matter what season it is!
The late winter calls for both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments for your zoysia grass.
Pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments should be applied in the late winter (January-March) to eliminate weeds from your zoysia grass. The pre-emergent treatment will help make sure no weeds will be able to sprout through the soil for the rest of the winter months. Post-emergent weed control applied in the late winter will eliminate any existing weeds so you don't have to worry about a lawn full of weeds once the spring season arrives.
Use both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments during the spring.
Because spring is the season of growth for weeds, it is important to apply a pre-emergent weed control treatment in the early spring to get a jump on weed prevention. The treatment will form a barrier on your soil that newly germinated weeds will not be able to penetrate. Pre-emergent weed control treatments can be very effective, but they don't work on existing weeds or weeds that were already past a certain point in their life cycle when the treatment was applied. Fortunately for you, this is where post-emergent treatments take action! A post-emergent weed control treatment will get rid of any weeds that have found their way onto your zoysia grass from the winter. Applying a post-emergent treatment in the late spring will eliminate any remaining weeds on your property.
Both pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments need to be applied in the summer months.
Zoysia grass is a warm-season grass that is prone to weeds all year long, especially during the summer. Because of this, it is crucial to regularly inspect your lawn for any weeds in the early summer. If you see weeds present on your lawn, you will need to have a post-emergent treatment applied as soon as possible to keep your zoysia grass weed-free. During the late summer months, applying a pre-emergent weed control treatment will block any additional weeds from appearing on your lawn. Before the summer season ends, another round of post-emergent weed control will need to be applied to eliminate any weeds that are still on your lawn.
Crabgrass, dandelions, and clover are some of the most common weeds to find in zoysia grass.
Prepare your zoysia grass for the winter by applying pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments in the fall.
It is important to keep your lawn free of any weeds in the fall so your zoysia grass is able to absorb all of the nutrients and resources it needs to survive the winter months ahead. During the early fall, a pre-emergent weed control treatment should be applied to ensure new weeds are not able to reach the surface, as well as a post-emergent treatment to eliminate existing weeds. In the late fall, another round of post-emergent weed control should be applied to eliminate any existing weeds on your lawn.
