Zoysia Grass – Ok for Virginia Beach, VA
I've read all the pros and cons concerning Zoysia grass, and that it prefers warmer climates. Va Beach is a transition zone where it gets plenty cold in the winter months. If I feel the pros of planting zoysia outweigh the cons, will it even survive / will it tolerate the temps in Virginia Beach or does it generally get too cold here for it to grow well? Thank you.

It will grow fine. The issue you will see if that zoysia turns brown in cold weather. It is not dead, just dormant and many people don't like the way it looks when dormant. It is for this reason that zoysia is mostly recommended for warm regions.
