Do Different Varieties Of Zoysia Require Different Soil Temperatures?

Q: Do different varieties of zoysia grass require different soil temperatures to root?

A: Different varieties of zoysia grass tolerate cold air temperatures differently, but the soil temperature for rooting is similar for all of them. My general advice is that you can install warm season sod when soil temperatures are above 60 degrees, usually in early May. You can check your local soil temperatures at georgiaweather.net.
