Zoysia farms grass?


I've been reading [a little bit] about this grass. We live in North Florida and my wife and I are always looking to save some money. Especially if it includes getting rid of some monthly maintenance and pesticides being spray around.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of grass? From my reading it cuts mowing and watering down as much as 2/3.

We're always looking for environmentally friendly ways of changing things we normally do and looking for some insight.

Imola,
I am not sure how it would be in Florida, but I did have it at a house I owned about 20 years ago. The previous owners had put it in the front yard. It looked ok during the spring and real early summer, but come mid july, it would totally brown out and that was it for the year. It would come back each year, but I didn't care for it.

From my reading it shouldn't be planted in any area with "real' winters which if it was in Cleveland then it probably wasn't the best choice.

How about cutting your lawn area down and planting lower maintenance and less water demanding ground covers? You can water ground covers with drip irrigation that waters in gallons per hour, not gallons per minute. Minimal need for chemicals.
