Zoysiagrass is adapted to a variety of soils and can have good tolerance to shade, salt, and traffic. It provides a dense, attractive turf.
New varieties are being developed for Florida lawns. These grasses grow more slowly and at a lower height than other southern lawngrasses, giving them a thicker, more manicured look. They require about the same amount of water as other grasses to remain green and healthy, but need less fertilizer.
Zoysiagrass is a suitable lawngrass for all areas of Florida, and it’s typically planted using sod or plugs.
The soft texture, green color, and adaptability of zoysiagrass make it worth checking out for your lawn!
