Zoysia grass is a warm season grass that was refined by the US Department of Agriculture and the PGA back in 1953. If you don’t mind your lawn turning brown in the fall and winter it can be a terrific grass because it doesn’t need a lot of water during the summer to stay green. It also doesn’t need a lot of mowing and grows laterally so vigourously that it crowds out most weeds.
If you have Zoysia grass, chances are that someone in the last 60 years ordered zoysia “plugs” from a newspaper ad and planted them in your lawn.
If you like your zoysia grass and want to spread it to the rest of your lawn you can order plugs online and plant them in the non-zoysia areas. The website, www.zoysiafarms.com, is a good place to buy them. If you'd like help with this project just give us a call, but if you have zoysia and don't like it, we can help too. We can come and cut out your zoysia, give it to someone who wants it, and plant a new lawn for you. Contact us for more information.
