    has anyone had success using Gly to completely get rid of zoysia in the northeast? I have a couple of lawns that are very nice, but have some spots of zoysia mixed in. Is the only way to rid of this "weed" dig it out? Or should i hit it with Gly in this nice heat we have right now. Its a shame, the lawns look great, weed free, other than the damn z mixed in.

    Can't speak for your area but my lawn was nearly all zoyzia and I use roundup. Sprayed it three times over a 4 week period. Did the trick. My guess is you are getting close to the end of your window for this year.

    Nail them hard with Round Up and sod cut out areas after about a week. Not sure what Gly is, assuming you mean Glyphosate, the AI in round up?
