I hate when that happens. Zoyisa being sold as low maintenance. Really? A zoysia lawn cut high can look good in the short term. Then it turns into a spongy mess. That is if the brown patch and leaf spot do not get into it because of how much moisture the overly thick grass holds. At least most people in Hawaii are honest about the maintenance requirements of zoysia.
