Empire Zoysia

empire zoysia turf lawn

Empire Zoysia

EMPIRE ZOYSIA is a versatile, adaptable lawn, well suited to Australian conditions. EMPIRE has performed well in both sandy and clay soil types, with aggressive growth from its runners and rhizomes. It can be mown with a standard rotary mower due to its ideal leaf width and open growth habit.

Good Winter Colour

EMPIRE ZOYSIA has good winter colour when compared to other more common turfs.

Tough and Hardwearing

EMPIRE ZOYSIA has excellent fast growth across the ground. Its runners are fast and highly branching, which provides excellent recovery from wear. EMPIRE ZOYSIA is quickly becoming known as the tough, hard wearing turf.

Less Mowing

Although EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA grows across the ground at a fast rate, its upwards leaf growth is less than most other commercially grown lawns in Australia. Ask for EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA. It grows fast across the ground for better wear tolerance, but one that grows more slowly upwards for less mowing.

Many growers find Empire slow to grow, especially in Victoria’s cold climate where they would turn over EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA every 14 months. Other varieties have a much faster turn over. Growing other varieties like Kikuyu or Couch is great for their bottom line, but not for you.

Shade Tolerance

EMPIRE ZOYSIA performs well in full sun, but also will tolerate moderate shade.
Empire is recommended for up to 50% shade in areas with low wear and up to 30% shade in areas with moderate to high wear.

Great at Out Competing Weeds

Once EMPIRE ZOYSIA is well established, its dense growth makes it much harder for weeds to establish. Of course, occasionally weeds can develop in EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA, and if in the unlikely event this occurs, please follow our maintenance guide.

Less Thatch, Less Scalping

EMPIRE ZOYSIA is known for its ability to create a dense sward without major thatch problems. EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA has less thatch and less scalping than any other zoysia.

Salt Tolerance

EMPIRE ZOYSIA has excellent salt tolerance. It thrives near the coast and is good at tolerating salt spray.

Disease & Pest Tolerance

EMPIRE ZOYSIA is very resistant to turf diseases and pests and will generally not show symptoms of most common disease and pest problems that plague other turf varieties. It is especially resistant to lawn grubs that cause big problems to many other lawn types. NOTE: Empire is more lawn grub resistant than other turf types, but this does not mean it is immune to lawn grub. If symptoms similar to lawn grub are present, consult with your lawn care professional.
