Zoysia – Burned Accidentally

Q: I was burning leaves under a cast iron grate in the driveway, it was really windy, and I looked away for a second. Need I say more? Have I done permanent damage to my zoysia?

A: Good news…I doubt the grass was harmed. The wind probably made the flames travel quickly, too fast to hurt the crown of the grass plants.

I know some folks still believe in burning their lawn in winter.

Why it’s a bad idea all around.
