zoysia sod just won't root

Posted by RudyTucker Georgia (My Page) on

I live in Atlanta Georgia. I had my lawn sodded with Jamur Zoysia about 45 days ago (beginning of March). It's still mostly pale green the way it was when it came, but it's just not rooting anywhere in the entire yard.

My landscaper assures me it will root, but I'm noticing some panels/pieces are looking a little white (like a dormant lawn, not dead brown).

I realize it's only April 19th, but we've had a pretty warm spring this year; shouldn't I be seeing some rooting by now?

It doesn't look dead, it's just not doing anything.
I was watering it daily like I was told, but I thought that by now it should be taking hold.
I get about 6-8 hours of direct sunlight a day. Most of the zoysia lawns around me are already greening up.

Am I just being inpatient or could there really be something causing it not to root?
I could see if one or two pieces weren't growing, but it's the whole yard.

You need to be more patient. We are just now getting into the 60's overnight. Zoysia is slow to establish.

zoysia doesn't start really moving until it stays hot at night. Then it'll start growing like crazy.

Is your Jamur Zoysia Ok? I am in Marietta and my newly sodded Jamur Zoysia is in a shock; Just trying to find if you have solved the issue. Appreciate your response. Here is my earlier thread URL link below
