Planting Zoysia

M-We planted 100 sq ft of zoysia sod (Myers) this morning. I used the bottom plow to dig out spots in the existing sod, then cut the zoysia sod to fit. Took a little different adjustment then actual plowing to get a nice level furrow, but once I got it set right it worked pretty well. Some furrows where a little shallow and some a little deep, but it sure beat doing it by hand! The Zoysia should gradually spread and fill in, 2-3 years from now we should have a nice drought resistant summer lawn. We got the sod from a local sod farm for $40, sure beats the junk they sell out of the catalogs. The boys were a big help cleaning up the old sod!
