After last winter, areas of my Emerald Zysia is still looking like the following area. What to do? Why did it occur? Replace, treat or both?


  • Bobby Master Identifier says:

    Emerald Zoysia is slow to recover from injury. Correct surface drainage issues. Wet soils from last summer caused extremely shallow root systems. Those conditions were followed by record cold this winter. A UGA turf alert was issued in March this year warning of likely winter kill issues in Zoysia and other warm season turf types. You are not alone! I don’t know if that makes you feel any better but it is what it is. Cut it out and replace it or allow 3 – 5 years for regrowth from surviving sprigs and spreading from edges. And, to answer the last question fully, yes.
