Zoysia Varieties

  1. EMPIRE Turf Zoysia
  2. Geo Zoysia
  3. Meyer Zoysia
  4. Zeon Zoysia

Zoysia (Zoysia Japonica) is the best choice for a partially shaded area due to it’s extreme shade tolerance. It’s a low-maintenance grass that thrives in warm humid conditions. In general, zoysias have excellent drought tolerance and exhibit disease and insect resistance at a lower-maintenance cost. Most commonly used in lawn application, zoysia is also an excellent choice on golf courses for fairways and teeing areas. This dense turf not only looks great, but feels great to bare feet!
