Turf Shadow

Anyone else beside DCHALL try it? I have this patch of bermuda that is thinning out underneath Live Oak trees (facing north) so I'm up for new experiments with different grasses for the fun of it. I don't remember what fine bladed zoysia looks like. It's been so long, I forget what it's supposed to look like in person. I've already took a piece of wide bladed zoysia but no idea on the cultivar to plug in the backyard. I estimate that it will take 30 years for it to completely take over the backyard and maybe another 30 years to creep into front yard and take over completely if I do nothing else.

I have not yet but will be coming next spring for sure.
[off topic] Lou, I could send you some Meyer Zoysia sprigs I've pulling out of the garden if you would want to try that type of grass out. I pull them and plant them throughout the yard willie-nillie. It's working great in speeding up the spreading
