Post your Zoysia pics!

I'd like to start a thread where everyone posts their Zoysia pics. I'm very curious to see how everyone elses zoysia looks.
Also, type of Zoysia, state located, and cutting height would be nice.

Mine's not doing to well

Empire Zoysia
Tampa, FL

If you saw a pic of my front yard! We have Zoysia in our yard - I don't know what kind it is. Half of our front yard was dug up to replace lines before we moved there, so it's kinda've uneven and spotty w/ grass. It is filling in some now but weeds are creeping in also. I'm thinking about getting a neighbor to dethatch it for me - I think it needs it. Do you dethatch yours? I might put a pic of the yard on sometime soon. We will, probably, mow at 3" this year. From reading another thread, I think we made a mistake last year by mowing it very short one or two times. We thought it would help!

Ok, I'm kinda've embarrassed to post these pics, but would appreciate any help. You may be able to tell that one side has been dug up and is overrun with weeds worse than the other side. Like I said, we were cutting it at 3" last year and cut it very short a time or two and it didn't come back well. It hasn't been cut yet this year. Here it is.
We will have lived here 2 years in Sept.

My avatar is Zoysia cut at 3.25 inches. That pic was taken years ago. Now, I have a good weed control and fert program that has really got that account going. I'll post some pics once it's fully green.
