Grow a Zoysiagrass Lawn
If you live in the Transition Zone -- an area that stretches from Kansas to the Carolinas -- then a zoysiagrass lawn may be a good option for you. Zoysia is heat- and drought-tolerant, and produces a thick green lawn during the growing season. Zoysia is a popular grass for golf-course fairways and tees, since it makes the ball sit up high for an easy hit. You can grow zoysia from sod, plugs, or seed.
