Whether Zoysia is right for you depends on where you live, your lawn care goals and how you use your lawn. When those elements align with Zoysia's strengths, this versatile lawn grass may be the ideal choice.


Advantages and Disadvantages of a Zoysia Lawn


  • Very drought tolerant: due to its deep root system, zoysia can survive prolonged periods of drought.
  • Reduces mowing: due to its rhizomes and stolons, zoysia’s lateral growth means it grows tall very slowly—this means less mowing.
  • Thrives in cold and heat: zoysia loves the heat and some cultivars can survive below zero temperatures.
  • Thrives in sun or shade: zoysia thrives in the sun and some cultivars survive in the shade with at least three to four hours of sunlight.
  • Exhibits a finer texture and a soft feel,
  • Chokes out crabgrass and weeds all summer long: due to its deep roots and thick carpet, zoysia chokes out weeds and keeps them from germinating in the first place. This also reduces money spent on herbicides.
  • Never needs replacement: zoysia heals itself. With the use of lateral growth, zoysia’s rhizomes and stolons help to withstand heavy traffic and will fill in if damaged. In comparison, St. Augustine and centipede grass only have stolons that grow above the ground, meaning zoysia grass has a greater ability to recover from damage.
  • Good for slopes, high traffic areas and bare spots,
  • Limits erosion,
  • Grows in a variety of soil types,
  • Does well in winter dormancy: zoysia will go dormant after the first frost and turn brown until soil temperatures reach 50 degrees again. Zoysia’s dormancy helps it withstand winter cold and come back full and green in the spring.


  • Temperamental color: your lawn can go from brown to green with the first sign of cooler weather,
  • Slow growing: zoysia has a slower growth rate in comparison to other grasses, making it slow to recover from high traffic stress in comparison to other grasses,
  • Zoysia Patch or Rhizoctonia Large Patch: zoysia is prone to zoysia patch disease,
  • Thatch: zoysia is also prone to thatch problems.
