Q. I have a Zoysia lawn, I’m not sure what type Zoysia, when pulling plugs should I mow first?

I reside in Tennessee. I’m wondering if when I pill plugs to plant a new area if I should leave the grass long or mow first.

It can help the grass to retain moisture if you cut it before you take plugs. This will force it to stop respiration and start making new shoots. I would advise mowing before hand.

Q. Zoysia grass

Will it hurt zoysia grass if a dog or cat pees on zoysia grass?

Answered by

A.

Yes female dogs and young males that squat to pee will cause brown spots from urine salts. Male dogs usually don't pee in the middle of the grass, but lift their leg against a tree or pole.

Cats usually don't pee much volume so not as much as an issue. And if you put out a sand box or pile of sand the cat will much prefer to use that and not pee in the middle of the grass.

A motion sensor activated sprinkler can deter both.

Q. Lawn/grass

We want to plant Zoysia sod this summer but have run off issues now. So can we prepare the soil and then plant rye grass to keep the soil from washing away, placing the sod on the bed of rye that has died?

That is a good solution, and I believe that will work just fine.
