Zoysia is a good grass for dogs that play ruff because zoysia lawns are very thick and wear down slowly. All grass can get damaged from a dog running, jumping and digging but Zoysia is a great grass for dogs because of its rapid growth. In instances where zoysia gets damaged, it will self-repair, unlike a fescue lawn.
People also ask us if zoysia grass is tolerant of dog urine. The short answer is "No". As with any grass, dog urine will burn the blade leaving a brown spot but dog urine will not kill the zoysia grass, the zoysia grass will come back. The best way to combat dog urine is to wash it off the lawn. Running a sprinkler or hosing off an area after use is the most effective solution thus far.
Zoysia grass turns a beautiful wheat color in the wintertime when it goes dormant. Zoysia grass needs 6 hours of direct sunlight. Zoysia, once established is a very durable and luxurious lawn that will withstand your pup's play.
