Zoysia Grass

Zoysia Lawn

Zone Midwest | JohnV added on October 7, 2011 | Answered

I have a established zoysia lawn at a rental property I own in St. Louis, MO. My tenant failed to water during this summer's extremely hot weather. The lawn has turned completely brown, dormant like during the winter. Is it dead? If not, what do I need to do to get it back next spring? JV

It is likely dormant. Many lawn grasses will go dormant in dry weather to preserve themselves, so this is not unusual. It should come back just fine in the spring when the temps and water return at the levels it likes.
