PS. I had it once in NYS. It was great in the summer. Blades didn't grow high too fast thereby reducing the need for frequent mowing. The only problems was that it turned yellow in winter and then didn't get green until late May. Where you are, that shouldn't be a problem. Because it spreads by rhizomes, it is very invasive. Besides smothering all other lawn vegetation, it will creep into gardens and neighbor's lawns. It needs to be cut along property lines and places where it is not wanted with an edger, or install physical barriers.

Zoysia requires frequent watering during dry weather. Bermuda tolerates drought conditions better.

In the few years I had it (I moved away afterwards), I never watered it, except until it filled in (I used the plugs rather than seed). After that, the morning dew seemed to be enough. YMMV. If it wasn't for the yellowing in the winter, I would have it here in upstate NY. I'll have to wait for global warming to increase. I'm 400' above sea level, so I don't have to worry about the melting poles and rising sea level. :-)

I will want to go to jail for 2 days if that will be the end of the deal. So I guess they don't like seeing your vegetable huh? You should be thankful that they didn't take you to UN council.
