Zoisa sod on a slope

I have a small sloped area in my lawn where I'd like to rip out some ivy and replace with zoisa sod to match the rest of the yard. I know I will have to get out as much of the ivy roots as possible, but are there any other special considerations when planting sod on a hillside? The slope is fairly steep (about 45 deg.) Do I need any sort of pins or spikes to hold the zoisa in place?

you will need sod staples to pin it down.

Are you sure you want to go from maintence free ivy to grass? I know zoysia doesn't grow tall but personally I don't want to have to weed eat anywhere I have to struggle to stand.

I live in the mountains and my drain field is on a steep incline. I'd love for it to be thick with ivy or anything that didn't require weed eating. I've tried to get ivy to grow but the weeds always seem to do better
