Was thinking I should post a pic of an average street. Now multiply this by the 100's. All zoysia turf being cut with rotary's: from riders to push mowers & not a one is being topdressed. (yet)

What time of year was that picture taken? I see drought stress and frayed leaf tips.

Winter dormancy. It is usually really dry in Florida during the winter, right? In my area, it is possible for it to be cool, rainy and humid for weeks on end at this time of the year. Excessively thick zoysia is disease prone compared to a lawn cut low.

Wow, well you live in n Florida and had a freeze right? Def get the 27". You also could be selling these people on overseeing since you guys routinely get freezing or near freezing temps. This neighborhood can be a gold mine if you market correctly and get people to see value in the reel and topdressing.

Perrenial rye...it will burn away when temps get consistently hot enough. It will give you a nice green though while the zoysia goes dormant.
