Zoysia turns brown also. Warm season grasses have to be seeded with a cool season grass in the fall- in order to have good winter color. If you want the best of both worlds, go with tall fescue. A local sod farm can give you info on what type is best for your area. Make sure you apply a good balanced fertilizer to your fecue around mid Oct. If this is not done, your fescue will brown out in cold weather.
