Zoysia Grass USA - Adaptation
At this time Zoysia grass leads the grass race category for the number of
"zones" adapted to a warm season grass in the United States. Whether due to more people experimenting
with the grass or due to climate changes over the last few years this grass has extensively grown in usage through these
extended areas. The adaptation to using seeds will of course broaden the scope of possibilities that have not existed for
many homeowners in the past.

Establishment of Zoysia Grass
Zoysia grass lawns can be started
from seeds, sod, sprigs, or plugs. Zoysia forms a deep root system and does not tolerate poorly drained soils. Adapted to seashores, full sun in the north, and sun to medium shade in the southern areas.
Seed Use Notice
Please note that we ONLY
recommend Zoysia seeds for use in bare soil areas.
Planting seeds into existing grasses has a HIGH
FAILURE rate. If planting into an existing lawn (grass and/or weeds) we recommend that you consider using Zoysia Grass plugs
instead of seeds. - Zoysia seeds also are
difficult to achieve germination in low light / shady
areas. Use plugs in these areas for best results.
a beautiful tomorrow!®
