Zoysia or buffalo grass is slower growing than most other types. You'll need to sod or plant sprigs - there are no seeds available for these grasses. You can plant in April or May. Prior to planting dig in several inches of compost to help loosen the soil and help it drain well. Good luck with your lawn.
