I just got a call to look at a new customer's lawn. The owner has about a 5,000 square foot front yard. About 60% is zoisia, the other parts are KB, Fescue, Rye mixes. He was asking about his options but was leaning towards having the zoisia removed and reseeding with KB, Fescue, Rye. He does not like how brown it gets in the winter and how it doesn't grow in the shady areas. He is also looking to create more of a monoculture. So the question is: has anyone ever removed a large amount of zoisia before. None of my other customers have zoisia so I have no experience dealing with it. What is the procedure? Spray it? Use a sod cutter? Rototill it and harley rake it? Or will he be better off trying to improve the existing stand of zoisia and possibly slice seeding with rye? The front yard is flat and properly drained. The edges are shady and there are a fair amount of obstacles (trees, beds, well cover etc) to work around. I have not gotten a soil test yet, but as soon as things thaw out I will have it off to the co-op.
