zoysia dead spots again

Posted by SKM72 ARKANSAS (My Page) on

I just discovered this site and I have a question concerning my zoysia lawn. I moved into the home where there was some dead spots. I dug it out and mixed some topsoil and manure and put sod down. I bought the zoysia sod from Lowes. It was a different type of zoysia but it did great for 3 years.

This spring I noticed that I have some dead spots at the same exact spots as before.

I sprayed fungicide last year. What shall I do so I dont have to replant every 2 to 3 years?

Is there any possibility of standing water in those spots after a heavy rain?

How often do you water and for how long? Is there any chance that your sprinklers don't hit that area for long enough?

RE: zoysia dead spots again

Actually, there is no standing water. I do have a sprinkler system that reaches every spot. I water about 3 days for about 25-30 minutes on each zone.

I had a beautiful green yard for 3 years after I put sod on those dead spots. Is it possible a tree might of been there and the roots are causing the spots. I moved into the house so I wasn't sure if there were trees there before.

Thank you
