Zoysia Lawn Question
About 1-1/2 years ago (July 2011) we replaced our St. Augustine lawn wiith zoysia. Since then my lawn maintenane people have been cutting the grass to a height of 3 to-3-1/2". While the grass looks OK and is weed free, it has a gnarled look and I have had recurring issues with fungus. I was out one day and passed a home with zoysia grass that was absolutely beautiful. The grass could not have been more than 1-1/2 to 1-3/4" high. It was absolutely perfect looking. I would like to reduce the height of our lawn from the present 3 to 3-1/2" to around 1-1/2". My question is -- should I do this now or wait until spring ? We are in the Orlando, Florida area. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
