It is a great grass for our growing zone & is pretty easy to care for!!!

Zoysia lawns typically need 1 inch of rainfall or irrigation per week. Deep, infrequent watering encourages deep, drought-resistant roots. Sandy soils may need more frequent watering to retain color during summer heat & stress. Mow slow-growing Zoysia lawn as needed to maintain a recommended height of 1 to 1 1/2 inches. Compared to many other lawn grasses, Zoysia has relatively low nitrogen requirements.

I have zoysia and you're right about needing sunlight to flourish.

I have Zoysia, St Augustine, and Bermuda. I don't see a huge difference in sunlight requirements. All grasses need a decent amount of sunlight. The zoysia is however, much more drought tolerant. All grasses need water too but the zoysia seems to take longer to show signs of stress than for sure St Augustine. It might be a push between Zoysia and Bermuda.

I'm confused by your post. You are yard sitting? Sprinkler system? When did they fertilize? Are you mowing it? Don't mow zoysia too short. Water an inch a week. It is scalding hot right now so it is just like any other grass!

Careful -- make sure you sharpen the mower blades more often than normal-- it has a high silica content and dulls blades fast.
