Q.We want to select grass for our small townhome courtyard.

Zone Jamestown, NC 27282 | Anonymous added on October 19, 2019 | Answered

We were thinking of zoyzia plugs to replace the grass that is there now. We’ve had a hard time getting anything to grow and look nice. We began with sod, then added seed. We made the mistake of not adding enough topsoil before the sod, so there’s a lot of red clay underneath. We began reading about how zoyzia is invasive, which we want in our courtyard, but we would not want it to spread outside our fence to the common areas of our community, due to the brown color in cold weather. Thank you!

This looks like a good resource for lawns in North Carolina from the North Carolina State University Extension:
