B&W,,, have you looked at the root zone of your Zoysia, yet??? Have you noticed the soil's texture and structure with its reaction to irrigation or rain???
Organic matter deep in the roots will continue to feed the plants if the moisture/air ratio is maintained in a healthy balance... I can not speak for Zoysia but if Agrostis, says too much water will weaken the plants, I would say the same thing about KBG,,, especially on heavy soils...
The microbes in the soil use air and water much the same way the plants do... I have one client that may have all the same microbes in his lawn that are living in the swamps... needless to say that the compacted dead zones of bare dirt, speak to the consequences of, Not Enough Air...
It is one thing to assume the amount of water needed it is better to see for yourself how much is needed by looking at it personally...

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
