Necessary Maintenance for Zoysiagrass
Zoysiagrass is becoming very popular for many new lawn installations. Before you choose zoysiagrass, make sure you are aware that it will require dethatching within a few years. This is normally a practice that needs to be performed by a landscape professional. They will need to evaluate the turf’s thatch level and use an appropriate piece of equipment like a power rake or verticutter. Both can be used on zoysiagrass since it has above and below ground stems. Just for information, a power rake should not be used on centipede or St. Augustinegrass.
