    I have a customer wanting to install zoysia grass on top of existing zoysia that has been torn up by a dog. My question is if the lawn is level and has no holes will I need to remove the existing grass before installing the new pallet grass.

    oh, no here goes this argument again......

    no you don't have to....
    cut the grass as short as you can ( to the dirt if you can)... and overlay..

    i would think that the lawn should be easier to repair. than relay
    we take a sod cutter and cut out around the dammaged areas and lay in the new sod...
    cutting out the old sod around the holes will let the new sod lay level with the old sod, and you should never see where the repairs were made.

    The thing is the whole yard is bad not just spots. It just seems it would be easier to lay a little dirt and put sod on top.

    We have a dog thread going in the irrigation forum and I'll repeat my answer here... Kill the dog. :laugh:
