    I have Jamur on my two year old lawn, it was developed by Dave Douget and grown here in Beaumont, the grass is very dense and takes a lot of abuse, i cut it with a rotary mower but will soon be using a truecut reel. it works very well here in southeast texas. here is a photo cut about 1.25 will be cutting it down to about .5 when i get the reel mower tuned up. we have been in a drought here with a shortage of 22 inches of rain ytd. i do have an irrigation system in the front yard on the side its simply gets when i drag the hose over to it. the entire yard is green after 2 inches of rain this week.

    That looks a lot taller than 1.25 inches.

    That was what I was thinking. Looks good though.

    It might look taller because the sidewalks are at a lower level then the soil. it maybe a little longer due to the rain, and a couple days behind in mowing, but it's at the lowest setting on my mower, it's hardy grass, and I recommend it been cutting st. Augustine for over thirty years, which required three times a year fert and Twice a year with a pre-emergent the Jamur only requires two ferts and 1 pre emergent.

    The main reason Texas is going zoysia is the save water and it isn't any different than any other grass in mowing. The stuff really really stays green and I will say I seen a couple yards that had NO water put on them come back nicely when the rains came. The fungus is my main concern especially on areas where we have drip and it might get overwatered in the winter.
