Zoysia Grass – Large Section Seems Dead
I had a beautiful zoysia lawn until this spring. I saw a very small section last year that turned brown, figuring that it would come back this year, but instead, a very large section, about 15 feet by 20 feet, never turned green and looks dead. There are sections of the zoysia that look fine, but a huge area is brown and looks dead. What can I do? I thought I would seriously rake it, hoping that there might be too much thatch, but I do not think that is the problem. Please advise.
