Brands Of Zoysia / Emerald & Zenith

Emerald Zoysia is the Maybach of lawn grasses. An artificially bred hybrid released by Dr. Forbes several years after Meyer, Emerald produces an extremely dense, find textured turf of true emerald green color.

It simply can not be neglected for long periods of time, but if fertilized twice annually, watered as needed and cut regularly, it makes a lawn in sun and/or moderate shade that is the envy of the neighborhood.

Emerald is very cold hardy, and although all the hot climate grasses turn brown after killing frosts, small plots of Emerald will maintain green color throughout most winters as far north as Atlanta in commercial areas where it is well protected and benefits from radiation heating from buildings and asphalt paving. It is especially useful where outstanding appearance is worth a premium, such as patios, around pool decks and small turf islands in shopping centers, apartments, etc.

Fast growing, fine textured and dense zoysiagrass. The smallest leaf blade of the commercially produced varieties. Somewhat higher level of maintenance required than for other zoysias. Emerald zoysia sod can be installed as dormant sod during cooler times of year.
