The ideal mowing height for zoysia grass cultivars can range from 1 to 2½ inches depending on your specific site and management. For most zoysia grass cultivars, turf grass growers recommend a mowing height of 1½ inches. In partial shade, mow zoysia grass at 2 to 2½ inches. Mowing heights below 1 inch will require a reel type mower to achieve satisfactory results, and with zoysia grass, a reel type mower will give better results at any height.
