Bo’s Zoysiagrass Project

I think hard work and persistence pays off, it was 18 months ago when Bo started his Zoysiagrass project.

The grass is mature now and will do well this summer since they can tolerate wide variations in temperature, sunlight, and water.ย  And North Carolina weather can be very hot and humid in the summer months.

This is the plug that he bought last September and it’s doing well.

It’s also known as the creeping grass and it looks like a spider here.

They look like a flower carpet in front of my house.

  1. Congrats to Bo on a job well done! It’s amazing to think it was 18 months ago… time really does fly.

    Does the periwinkle bring lots of bees? These remind me of tiny Geranium and Daisy too.

    • Hi Cambree, his exercise routine is pulling weeds and walking Max these days. ๐Ÿ™‚

      To be honest, I’ve not seen any bee this year. I’ve been working outdoor for a month now and not sure if Spring is rushing itself and the bees are not ready.

      • Hi Nye,
        The bees are still asleep. They don’t come out during the winter and also when it rains.

        I just remember this from Rowan Jacobsen’s book about the disappearance of bees in “Fruitless Fall”. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Cambree, that explains it, and since Spring comes so early this year it might as well be a fruitless Spring also. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The grass is nice and green. I wish I can say that about my lawn :-). Those hot and humid weather in NC sure helps the grass/plants/flowers grows fast.

    • seeharhed, it’s a lot of hard work and luckily our yard is not that big.

      The hot and humid weather here made me think of Laos, I hope to spend more time in my garden this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Geni, it’s very easy to grow and spread like wildfire. It’s also the first sign of spring around here. ๐Ÿ™‚
