When To Lay Zoysia Sod

Q: Is it too late in the season to lay zoysia sod? I have a southern facing lawn with limited sun in the winter due to lots of surroundings trees. 

A: The answer is a qualified maybe. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but lawn grasses have slowed down growing in the last few weeks. Sod of any kind laid now will be slow to root, which means you have to water it in winter so it doesn’t completely dry out. I guess it depends on how much you’re willing to gamble on the sod cost, ability to irrigate, continued warm weather, etc.
