What is Better - Zoysia Seeds or Plugs?

I am looking to plant Zoysia grass in my lawn. What is the better option, seeds or plugs?

My recommendation is to use the Plugs.

Zoysia Seed is very fragile and can be difficult to establish. The seeds require a lot more watering than Zoysia Plugs. Plugs need only to be watered 10-15 minutes for the first two to three weeks only, while seeds require watering two to three times daily to prevent the root systems from drying out. Also, Zoysia Seed is more expensive than other seed species and is known for its low germination rate. If you are going to plant Zoysia in your lawn - go with the plugs, in my opinion.
