Comparison of Zenith & Compadre Zoysia Grass Varieties.

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.

Emerald is considered the finest Zoysia, but unfortunately produces no seeds; and it also does not have much cold tolerance. The good news is that we have Empire Zoysia Grass Plugs - See our informational website lawnplugs.com for more information on Zoysia plugs.
