Zoysia Grass

Is Zoysia Grass Used in Shaded Areas

David Rod added on May 29, 2012 | Answered

I have not had very good luck with Zoysia grass growing in Oklahoma. Is there a reason why this grass has not been a good choice for Oklahoma? I have planted in the shade and in the sun and both places get choked out by other grasses.
