Empire Zoysia is a tough wearing, soft to touch, low maintenance turf grass. It has an appearance very similar to modern day soft leaf buffalo and is one of the most drought tolerant turf grasses known. It is excellent in full sun and thrives in hot, humid areas while having good shade tolerance.
Due to its natural insect, disease and chemical resistance, Empire Zoysia is requires little maintenance.
Empire Zoysia will require less mowing (every 7–14 days) than nearly all other turf grasses grown in Australia today, making it a great grass for slopes and ideal for landscaping. The ideal mowing height for Empire Zoysia lawns is 35-45mm.
