Zenith® Zoysia is a great choice for lawns in the middle of the country. Zenith has shown in study after study to be one of the most cold-tolerant and heat-tolerant zoysia varieties, and its wider blade looks very similar to kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue.
An advantage to using plugs grown in trays is that there is much less transplant shock because the root system remains intact to a large extent. This allows the plug to start growing and spreading faster as it doesn't require the time to recover from transplant shock.
