Hi:
Are you definitely set on zoysiagrass? It isn't the best grass for PA. It's a warm season grass, and where it does get established in our area, it becomes aggressive and hard to contain. The turf specialist at main campus gave me this link. However, he doesn't recommend zoysia for PA so doesn't keep up with it and doesn't know the quality of this vendor.
