EMPIRE Zoysia Grass is as hardy as it is attractive, and has a deep, thick root structure. It is more drought tolerant than most varieties of Zoysia grass, once established. In addition, slower vertical growth, plus natural chinch bug and chemical resistance's, mean your lawn will require less maintenance, mowing and water than with other types of warm season grass. In some instances, once naturalized to the local climate, EMPIRE Zoysia Grass requires minimal irrigation.
These reduced maintenance needs and durability are EMPIRE's hallmarks. EMPIRE Zoysia was originally developed in Brazil, and thrives in harsh tropical climates, yet also exhibits excellent cold hardiness. EMPIRE Turf is one of the few grasses rated to perform well in all zones; and it can thrive in varying soils and climatic conditions.
Durable enough for professional use, EMPIRE is also a favorite of golf courses, theme parks, master planned communities, office complexes and other commercial areas. Fill out the form below to have a sod specialist contact you about you specific needs.
