Q.Can I plant Empire Zoysia mixed in with sparse fescue, or do I have to kill, till and start again?
I live in middle GA and have a sun and shade yard. Fescue was planted last fall and is almost completely brown and it is very sparse. I saw a beautiful Empire Zoysia yard that was sun and shade and think it would be better. Can I plant Zoysia plugs in with the fescue and eventually it will take it over completely or do I absolutely have to kill the current grass, till it and start again? I really don’t want to have to do that; I don’t think I have the energy for it. I used True Green Lawn Care service and was told the grass has a fungus It is almost totally brown. Attached is the picture of the front and back yard.
Thanks for your help.
