Q. Zoysia Grass

In warm weather, zoysia grass problems are fewer and the benefits are greater and this grass is worth looking at. But if you are in a cooler climate, planting a zoysia grass lawn is just asking for trouble.
What is considered warm weather. We live outside of Nashville, TN. Would you say this is a warm weather climate?

You are close to my neck of the woods. Zoysia Does wonderfully in Tennessee. A good friend of mine uses this as his primary grass when he replaces lawns.

It is just cool enough here to help keep it from becoming overly invasive. In more southern climates, this grass is like the more evil equivalent to Bermuda grass here.

You will be fine planting zoysia here.

Q. zoysia grass

Our grass was put down in early November and has not yet rooted (early February). Should we begin treating the unrooted grass with fertilizer and preemergent chemicals?

This can happen in colder regions. I would not do so at this time. You will want to let it establish before you use anything that might inhibit rooting.

Q. Zoila grass

These are the guidelines that I was able to find.
These are only guidelines and I cannot say for sure that you would not have damage to the grass.

You will need to test the water. The chlorine level should be no higher then 0.1ppm.
PH should be in the neutral range 6.5 to 7.8.

I also should point out that the research showed that most cities have strict guidelines on discharging pool water in the sewer system and you may need to notify the city.

Q. Zoysia grass

Can I weed and feed while lawn has not turned all green?

A.

I would wait until it is actively growing and you are past your frost-free date. Blades that are still dormant will not absorb nitrogen and it is the one nutrient that leaches through the soil the fastest. Tender blades responding to increased nitrogen will suffer the most if you have a freeze later.
