How Often Should You Mow Zoysia Turf?

The frequency of mowing zoysia turf depends on the desired grass height. Shorter lawns require more mowing than grass maintained at a taller height, especially with frequent watering and fertilizer applications. Kansas State University recommends once a week mowing for 1 1/2 inch turf, and cutting off no more than 1/3 of the grass blade at a time.
