How Often Should You Fertilize Zoysia Grass in the Summer?

In general, apply 1 lb. of nitrogen fertilizer per 1,000 square feet of zoysia lawn in mid-May and apply 1 lb. again by mid-July. Over-fertilizing leads to excess growth and thatch accumulation. Select a fertilizer formulated for warm-season lawn grasses.
