While it’s generally dependent on the type of zoysia grass you have, most winter damage will not permanently cause harm, as the grass is usually dormant anyway. In fact, zoysia will normally heal itself within a few months. The most cold tolerant variety is Meyer, which is actually hardy to -30 F below zero. Emerald zoysia, which is another popular variety, will stand cold temperatures without damage around 5 to 10F.
