Discusses the potential benefits of zoysiagrass in mowing, irrigation, fertilization, disease control, weed control, insect control and cultivation. Concludes that "zoysiagrass is less expensive to maintain than creeping bentgrass in all categories evaluated...The greatest differences in maintenance costs between the species were in disease control...and irrigation."
