Zoysia is my worst nightmare. What’s the point of trying to have a beautiful lawn if it’s only green 3-4 months of the year? I learned quickly after buying my house that half of my front lawn was zoysia. It looked like it was half dead til it finally came out of dormancy. And good luck getting rid of it. The roots are like prickers and run across your lawn instead of down, so it eventually overtakes everything. I was lucky where last spring all the rain we got soaked the roots so much it actually killed 90% of it, I’ve had the dead spot aerated about 4 separate times And each time they tore up the ground and it’s still very bare. The new grass seed has a really Hard time growing because of how thick the roots from the zoysia are even though the roots are dead.

Steer clear.

That’s the mix I use 95% of the time unless a client request something different
In addition to the Kentucky bluegrass, rye grass, tall fescue, and fine fescue, the URI mix uses a Kentucky Bluegrass-Texas Bluegrass hybrid for drought tolerance, now that New England's climate has become much warmer and slightly drier over the past 60 years.
