I just had a new lawn put in....Empire Zoysia....It has been a month and I was curious as to how long I should wait before mowing it the first time....I was told that it should be cut to a length of 2-2 1/4 inches....
Any help would be appreciated!
I think 2 inches is the highest you want to mow. Here is the link to the Empire Zoysia site.
2-3 inches. I've tried 3 inches on Palisades cultivar before and it looked nice. Try it at different heights and see which one you like best.
Keep blade sharp at all time. Zoysia will wear it out rather quickly.
