Zoysia For Your Landscape
If you enjoy the feel of Meyer zoysia but dislike
the lime green look, then you will love Jamur.
With its’ medium blade width and blue-green
color, Jamur is the improvement in zoysia that
our clients have been waiting for. While Jamur
is impressively wear tolerant, you will love
the look of it even more.
your landscape plan is to provide unparalleled
beauty and reduce maintenance, then Jamur will
be the perfect centerpiece for your landscape
Zoysia For Golf
From your aprons and bunker faces to the front
lawn of the clubhouse, Jamur is a zoysia that
our golf clients have fallen in love with. After
years of trying to achieve some kind of relatively
nice color with Meyer, you can now spend your
money somewhere else on the course, because
Jamur comes with a natural blue-green color
is a very durable grass and provides great recovery
from cart and foot traffic. The recovery rate
on Jamur is nearly half the time when compared
to the older zoysias, which means increased
usability of valuable surface area with a reduction
in high intensity management practices.

and most of all, ease of use.

following suggested management practices are
designed as a guideline to assist lawn care
professionals and homeowners in the maintenance
of an Jamur Zoysia grass lawn. Location, terrain,
soil type and condition, age of the lawn, previous
lawn care, and other factors affect turf performance.
For these reasons, the following management
practices can be adjusted to suit your particular
home lawn conditions.
Jamur Zoysia at 2 inch height during the growing
season. Jamur Zoysia is an exceptionally dense
turf so to make mowing easier mow before the
turf reaches 3". Practice grasscycling.
Grasscycling is simply leaving grass clippings
on your lawn. Glass clippings decompose quickly
and can provide up to 25 percent of the lawn's
fertilizer needs. If prolonged rain or other
factors prevent frequent mowing and clippings
are too plentiful to leave on the lawn, they
can be collected and used as mulch.
- When grass begins to green up in spring apply
a turf-grade high-nitrogen fertilizer, such
as 20-4-10, preferrably containing a weed preventer
such as Barricade. Broadcast fertilizer using
a rotary-typespreader following spreading rates
recommended on bag.
- In mid-summer apply a complete nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium
(N-P-K) turf-grade fertilizer such as 28-4-6
or similar. Broadcast fertilizer using a rotary-type
spreader following spreading rates recommended
- In early to mid fall apply a turf-grade Fall
Feed/Winterizer, such as 5-5-20, preferably
containing a weed preventer such as Barricade.
Broadcast fertilizer using a rotary-typespreader

maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest
months of summer, Jamur Zoysia needs about 1
to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils
it often requires more frequent watering, for
example, 1/2 inch of water every third day.
A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves
indicate that it is time to water. Proper irrigation
may reduce pest problems in the summer. NOTE:
Always water during the early to late morning
hours and never at night. Watering at night
may cause fungal development.
a granular preemergence herbicide such as Team
2G in early to mid February to prevent the emergence
of spring weeds such as crabgrass. Late spring,
summer and applications of preemergence herbicides
are also recommended, and as stated above can
be applied in combination with a fertilzer containing
a weed preventer.
kill weeds that have emerged postemergence herbicides
can be applied. Apply postemergence herbicides
only when weeds are present and make sure to
wait until three weeks after the lawn is green.
Be sure the product is labeled for use on Zoysia
grass and always be careful to follow mixing
and applications instructions on product label.
Spot treating is recommended.
We don't see too many problems with insects
on Zoysia grass. On rare occasion we've seen
spittle bug infestation. Spittle bugs are small,
1/4-inch size, triangular-shape black insects
that have bright red stripes on their wings.
If you find spittle bugs in your Zoysia lawn
contact your local nursery to inquire about
thatch is present and more than 1/2-inch thick,
use a dethatcher to remove thatch in May.
don't see too many problems with fungus on Zoysia
grass. If a fungus is present, daconil, sentinel
or eagle are fungicides that may be used on
