Zenith Zoysia(Seeded Time Lapse) 2009.
tilled lawn june 2 - june 21 2009. Cleaning out rock, weeds, everything. I added Sulfur because my soil test said PH was around 8. I did not add anything else to soil, just till it about 6 inches deep horizontal and vertically a few times. I planted zenith zoysia the 21st of June(First Day of Summer and Fathers day. Here is my time lapse. I live in Texas. I'm doing this because I have search the internet for this can of information and have not found it.
June 21 -
I received the seeds June 20. The seeds where planted June 21,2009. That day just happened to be FatherÂs day and the first day of the summer.)
July 2 -
11 days (Small areas are showing signs of Zoysia sprouts. Sprouts are Right on schedule. IÂm watering 10 minutes at 6am, 10am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, and 7pm. I was not trying to over water the grass seed.)
18 days after planting seeds. (Right side is showing signs of growing while left side is slow. The left side seems to dry out faster. I also raked in new seeds in bare spots close to the sprinkler and by the tree.)
July 16 -
25 days after planting. (More growth is showing on the left side. I turned the sprinkler to face that area and started watering 20 minutes at 6am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm and 8pm. Keep in mind; all of July has been about 102 or higher on average for the month. By the way, every evening I go out and get rid of weeds that are trying to sprout.)
32 days after seeding. (We finally got about an inch of rain between Monday and Tuesday 20th and 21st and for the last 6 days the temperature has been below 95 degrees.
Feels like Fall in Summer- Not Really!)
July 24 grass growing in yard (hopefully it's Zenith zoysia)
