COMPARISON OF ZOYSIA LAWN VARIETIES

Shown below are pictures and graphs about various Zoysia varieties, both seeded types (Zenith / Compadre) and vegetative established ones such as Emerald, El Toro, Empire, Meyer, etc (We sell Empire as grass plugs). Vegetative ones are types that must be established from plugs or sod as NO seeds are available.

Reasons To Consider Zenith Zoysia Seeds

  • Zenith Zoysia can provide a better quality turf than Meyer and basically about the same quality as found with El Toro and Emerald.  It is not quite as fine bladed as Emerald.
  • Zenith turf color is the same as Meyer and El Toro and has a better, darker green color than Emerald.
  • Zenith performs better under drought stress than Meyer, El Toro and Emerald.
  • Zenith survives winter temperatures better than El Toro, Emerald and Meyer.
  • Zenith establishment time from seeds is faster than plugs. Plugs can take anywhere from 2 to 4 years to completely cover.
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.
