Wide Blade Zoysia


 Crowne Zoyiagrass is an aggressive, dark green, course textured lawn grass. It is best suited for use as a warm-season turfgrass for golf course roughs, home lawns, industrial parks and highway right-of-ways throughout the central mid-western states. Crowne is noted for its tolerance to drought, cold weather and its rapid recuperative ability. 


With Cutlass Zoysia, you might as well put the mower back in the garage. You’re not going to be mowing for a while. Cutlass Zoysia is an extremely low maintenance grass. It’s drought tolerant and shade tolerant like other Zoysias, but what makes it special is its growth habit. Most of the growth of this grass goes to the roots and horizontally across the lawn for great coverage. What it doesn’t do is grow much vertically. This creates a strong, resilient lawn that you hardly have to mow! 

El Toro


El Toro Zoysia is a patented zoysia variety developed by Dr. Victor B. Youngner at the University of California-Riverside. It has a medium width leaf blade similar to Meyer Zoysia (Z-52), however it has a far superior establishment rate. It’s aggressive lateral growth and ability to recover from injury, makes it an ideal selection for shaded high traffic areas on golf courses, home lawns and athletic fields where Bermuda grass isn’t suitable. It has a dark green color, excellent shade tolerance and requires less fertilizer and mowing than bermuda grass. It is also much more drought tolerant than Meyer Zoysia making it an excellent choice for low maintenance areas.

Empire was developed in Brazil. As a result, it thrives in extreme heat and humidity. Empire is an adaptable zoysia, it can adapt to the varying climatic conditions of the southern United States as well as to a wide range of soil types. Its massive root system runs deep and sustains the grass through periods of drought, heavy use, and harsh conditions while providing rapid injury recovery. Empire is used for residential and commercial sites.


 As one the most drought tolerant zoysias available, JaMur Zoysia requires less water to produce a lush, dense turf. University research and NTEP (the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program) proves JaMur’s excellent ability to recover from traffic and wear. Go ahead, let the kids and the dogs play on it! 


Palisades was developed at Texas A&M’s Agricultural Experiment Station from a zoysia with Beltsville, MD origins. It is a medium-textured grass that is noted for its shade tolerance and low water use requirements. It is used on residential, commercial, and golf sites.  When compared to St. Augustine, Palisades has a comparable shade tolerance, requires less water and fertilizer, and is a thicker, denser turfgrass. During extremely dry periods, Palisades only requires one to two deep irrigations per month.
