Don't worry so much about warm season specific channels, look for channels that are based on overall agronomic care of turf. The core meat carries over on all turf types.

IMO
-Ryan Knorr is the best yt channel for lawncare, I'd start there. He's cool season but covers all turf types.
-GCI Turf, is good and he's getting more into warm season turf
-The Lawn Tools, great warm season info and entertaining

There are a few to STAY AWAY from. Seriously.
-how to with doc....He's a slimy salesman and only wants your money. Beyond arrogant and smug. The worst
-bermuda grass central....just don't do it

Lol I agree about how to with doc. He seems to be a salesman of his own product.

I really like Connor Ward. He is in Utah but mows low and fertilizes frequently both liquid and granular. He doesn't try to sell you on anything and his videos are very entertaining.

Are there any channels out there specifically for the fine bladed zoysias? Seems every channel that covers warm season lawns have either St. Aug or Bermuda. Even though LCN has zoysia in his side yard, it is the wide bladed Empire, which (from what little I've found out there) has different maintenance suggestions compared to Emerald or Zeon and the like.

Looks like you found a niche that needs to be filled :thumbup:

I've seriously thought about it. But I'm brand new to Zoysia myself and still learning how best to take care of it.
That's the best time to be videoing your game plan. Of course, you may not want to post it until you figure it out, but by making mistakes on video, you will be saving someone else from doing the same.

I'm just curious but why is there so much disdain for Bermuda Grass Central?
From watching a few, I got the distinct impression that he doesn't know what he's talking about. My impression seemed to be confirmed when I noticed he had several videos on properly applying weed 'n' feed.

But hey, I'm new to bermuda and the lawncare 'tubers so take that for what it's worth.

You are very astute and just scratching the surface :thumbup:

Not gonna hate on "BYD" and his videos. I know most folks here are well past using weed and feed, but I've got a couple of neighbors that I'd be happy if they used anything on their lawns. Weed and feed would be better than nothing.

While that's technically true, I think the point of places like TLF or excellent YT channels is to educate and push people toward better practices, not just leave them with the easiest "solution" and kind of leave it there.

Something is usually better than nothing. Usually. But something should be the first step of a journey to somewhere better, not just the end of the road, when it comes to learning about lawn care. People who visit TLF or watch lawn channels hopefully want to get further than just the bottom rung of the ladder.
