    Hi there :waving:

    I may not be a commerical lanscaper yet, but I do have questions.

    I wanted to plant some Companion Zoysia (click here)seeds in Las Vegas. I have already tilled Humus Gro into the top 4-6 inches and then some top soil on top. I added starter ferts 5-10-10 last week. I plan on seeding this weekend.

    I guess my question is, does anyone know how Zoysia will do in Southern Nevada, Las Vegas in particular? :cool:

    I know it should stay green longer than most states.

    Also, if and when the front yard is established, can Zoysia be plugged to take over a Bermuda grass?

    My backyard is mainly Tall Fescue. But this summer Bermuda started to take over in one corner of the yard and it's spreading fast. I would like to replace the whole backyard with Zoysia eventually.

    Thanks for the help guys.
