Help!! Weird Darkening Spots on Zeon Zoysia


Myself, my landscaper (an NC State Agriculture Grad), and a few other lawn gurus can not figure out what is going on with what started out as some browning (almost like it wasnt getting enough water) and turned into strips of darkening grass (almost black). We have had good weather in NC and i've been watering about every 3rd day for 15mins a.m. and 15mins p.m. during the really hot days. I've attached pictures. Whatever suggestions you can offer would be great!!!

Neighbor's dog peeing on your lawn?

I'm near Charlotte, NC. I have Zenith Zoysia and only water when the grass is starting to look stressed. This year, that has only been twice. Nature has taken car of it the remainder of the time. Previously, I was watering a 2400 sq ft section once a week for 25 minutes and it was doing no different than watering when needed.

It almost looks to me like standing water along the edges causing it to rot and die.

Did you ever figure out the cause of the black spots? I put down Zeon two month ago and I noticed similar black spots in a couple places. I chalked it up to those areas of the grass drying out too much when the sod was new and most have seemed to recover. Just wondering if you had a similar recovery.
