Zoysia grass, why is it so special
Zoysia is a particularly hardy grass that grows well in a wide range of conditions and requires far less watering and mowing than most grasses.
At the same time, this “tough” grass creates a thick, soft carpet that feels great in bare feet.
Zoysia is ideal because it actually grows differently. It sends out runners or “stolons,” expanding sideways more than it grows tall.
This is why it is so dense and effective at choking out most summer weeds and replacing existing grass.
With our superior blend of zoysia, Amazoy®, you can plant a network of plugs in a new or existing lawn and it will grow into a lush, even, weed-free lawn within several growing seasons.
The key reasons zoysia grass is so attractive:
Cuts water bills
Zoysia’s vigorous root system is so deep and extensive the grass rarely, if ever, needs watering – zoysia can really cut your water bills.
Reduces mowing by two-thirds
The lateral growth of zoysia means it grows tall very slowly – most people mow zoysia once for every three times they need to mow other grasses!
Zoysia thrives in heat and cold
“The hotter it gets, the better it grows.” Zoysia loves blistering heat and yet it won’t winter kill either – it can survive to 30° below zero. It’s perfect for extreme conditions as well as mild climates.
Chokes out crabgrass and weeds all summer long
Your established zoysia lawn grows so thick with deep roots that crabgrass and other weed seeds cannot germinate.
No more chemicals
Since zoysia naturally resists insects and diseases, you avoid the cost, time and risk of exposing your family and pets to weedkillers and pesticides.
Never needs replacement – even heals itself
It’s beautiful and tough. The way it naturally grows outward along the ground in all directions, zoysia grass acts as a network of plants that can withstand heavy use and will fill in if damaged.
Zoysia is THE answer for slopes, play areas, and bare spots
You can’t beat zoysia for hard-to-cover spots, worn areas or to end erosion on slopes. It even levels out ground irregularities.
