Zoysia grass is found in the southern portion of the state where the weather is warmer. Zoysia grass is a “warm weather” grass, that turns brown in the cool seasons then becomes a lushous green lawn in the warmer weather.
It has become quite popular in Virginia, especially in the Piedmont and Tidewater areas. More and more home owners are planting zoysia grass plugs to replace their current lawns. It grows during the higher temperature seasons and as mentioned, in the cooler weather goes dormant.
The zoysia grass spreads to fill out and thicken the lawn. It requires very little maintenance as it is drought tolerant and can grow in rocky, sandy and arid soils.
Because it spreads so well, you will need to watch that it doesn’t spread to your neighbor’s yard.
