The odds are against zoysia at a 3" to 4" cutting height. It will decrease its age life. St. Aug can survive over 45 years that I have seen. Some with minimal issues. Zoysia,,, no way past 6 years in central fl with minimal issues. Will definitely cost mucho dinero to keep alive chemically. Number one problem for a drought tolerate turf is a home owner with a "automatic sprinkler system". Most people don't understand the reason for using zoysia instead of St. Aug. It might have been invented so the Yankees who move to Fl don't have to use St. Aug because they consider St. Aug to be crabgrass.
