zoysia is fairly rare here, i do have 1 old guy has it, its my buddys uncle, and when i started the lawn was way over grown(so tall it was fallin over), did the normal stuff, double cut with deck up, blew it all off, then cut at 4 1/2.. Looked great after a few months, stripes real good, but i see on here you guys all cut it real short, what do you do with it? If i went below id say 3 3/4 on his it would be instant brown, like within hours..

There are different varieties of Burmuda. The hybrids are intended to be cut shorter. The common Burmuda looks better when cut longer. You may be cutting Burmuda and just didn't know it. Do you guys have that real long wire grass up there? It gets all in the planting beds and stuff.

Up here we have mainly, fescue, or bluegrass. Very little zoysia, and i dont think any bermuda, we get a lot of onion grass sprouting up in the spring in the lawns and beds, but i dunno if youd call that wirery or not. I havent been down south since before i was in business, i wish i paid more attention to things like that when i was down there. From pics, i dont care for the bermuda, but ii guess im just not used to it either.

The reason I ask is we had tons of common Burmuda in MD. In a staight line NJ is pretty close to MD so I would think it is possible to have Burmuda in NJ. Especially southern NJ.
