a WARM-SEASON grass adapted to warm climates, zoysia is slow to become established but is very water-efficient, with few pest problems. It prefers full sun but will tolerate some shade. Zoysiagrass forms a thick turf, prickly to the touch.
• Well-suited to fairways and roughs
• Dense, drought-resistant, weed-choking turf that requires relatively little water
• Good shade tolerance
• Can survive a fairly wide range of mowing heights
• Provides excellent coverage and superb fairway lies
• Can also grow further north than most other warm-season grasses
• Susceptible to brown patch, and thatch can also be a problem
• Although dense, it grows very slowly and can therefore take a season or more to become firmly established
• Takes longer to recover from disease or climate-related problems than other warm-season grasses
