Q.Zoysia Grass

Anonymous added on February 17, 2014 | Answered

I live in Lynchuburg, VA and want to know if planting zoysia plugs will help choke out wiregrass or Burmuda grass? Will the wiregrass just take over the zoysia?

It will make a dent in the appearance of those kinds of grasses, but will likely not push them out completely. The fact that those kinds of grass weeds are in your yard indicates that there is some deeper issues with the soil. Rather than plugs, you would be better off starting from scratch, amending the soil and reseeding.
