Out of the past 10 years eight of then in NY have been the hottest on record. Cool season grasses are frying even with irrigation. The few Zoysia lawns are thriving. I know most in the north frown on Zoysia. I've got soooo much crabgrass, fungus and toasted blue and rye. Last year was the hottest year on record and so much turf died. Maybe they'll make a hybrid Zoysia-blue or rye. Any opinions?
