Just wondering if anyone here has ever tried to establish a Zoysia lawn by seed? I have never seen it attempted here. The closest I have seen is a guy in one of the neighborhoods I service attempted to sprig a zoysia lawn and that did not work to well for him as it was roughly two years ago and his lawn is essentially common bermuda. This gentleman however does not appear to use a L & O company or do any sustained mgmt to the lawn himself from talking to him. IFAS does say that Zoysia japonica can be properly established by seed but as stated I have never seen it done here. I am assuming there is a reason and I know the cost of the seed itself is expensive however I would assume it would be lower than sod if it is able to be grown here.
