What is this Weed in my Empire Zoysia lawn?

This is what I did. However I was very proactive in keeping my lawn weed free so if you catch it early and remove it you save a LOT…

dead looking turf rolls

Really they just needs frequent watering but don't leave them soggy all the time.

Empire Zoysia or another turf in Perth area ??

EZ doesn't go brown just because its summer.
It will go brown if:
a) fungal infection (brown spot)
b) not enough water - this happens with any lawn.
If it is kept watered and…

Well there is a rust lawn disease which is what you've had then.
While the result may be the same, mine only suffered rust in the shaded areas. I have…

Is this bug causing harm to my EZ?

Hey guys.
Not really surprised I haven't had any replies, though I did manage to catch one and get a photo of it.
Due to the size, it's very hard to get…

If it's only a small area I'd just keep pulling it out by hand until eventually it can't re-grow.

Pricing for turf

SW for $7/metre?!? That's a bargain. I have never seen it under $10.
I paid $7.50 for EZ and that was a great price.
