Weed control with Zoysia grass

Asked March 31, 2019, 6:35 AM EDT

Hello , As my zoysia continues to fill out slowly throughout my lawn the thin to bare spots are prime for weeds. What is the best product to use to control the general weeds until the zoysia fills in, and when is the best time to apply? I live in southern Md to give you an idea of the climate and temperatures. Thank you.

Before a control can be recommended you will have to identify the weeds. Some common broadleaf weeds may include wild onions and garlic. Here is our weed gallery and management information. Follow label directions for application and timing. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/lawn-weed-id-and-management
You can send us photos of the weeds you are referring to.

Take a look at our turfgrass maintenance calendar for warm season grass like zoysia. There is general information regarding care throughout the year. http://extension.umd.edu/sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_docs/programs/hgic/HGIC_Pubs/lawn_pubs/HG112...
