This was planted about a month ago at the rate of 1.5 lbs seed/1000sq ft. It is a viable option if you are tired of planting fescue every fall. However, it should be planted during the month of May or early June. Also, the first summer, you will have to tolerate the weeds that germinate with the zoysia seed. It also MUST be watered daily, lightly and frequently until it germinates, about 14 days. Zoysia is a good option if you have full sun and want your lawn to be its best for June, July, August September. Overseeding into zoysia with ryegrass for winter color is NOT an option. Let me know if you are interested in seeding zoysia next May.
