What brand of fertilizer are you using for your Zoysia grass and where do you get it?
I've tried to search but have not come up with much. So the question is, what is the recommended fertilizer.
Thanks in advance!

Hello Aztaehr,
It is recommended to use a fertilizer with a ratio of 15 nitrogen, 0 phosphorus, 15 potassium.

What Type of Fertilizer Does Zoysia Need? You should use up to four pounds of a nitrogen-based fertilizer per year per 1,000 sq feet of grass. The ideal zoysia grass fertilizer will be a 15-0-15, 15-0-10, or 15-0-5 fertilizer mix.

I use Hi-Yield Weed & Feed. This product combines a granular weed killer and fertilizer. It kills weeds while providing enough nutrients for Zoysia grass. The fertilizer has enough nitrogen and potassium for Zoysia lawn. I just started gardening this spring, and I learned about this fertilizer from an explained video on one gardener's blog. I don't have much experience, so I do a lot of reading and watching on this topics. The weeds have decreased, the grass is growing great, I think this is a really good remedy.
