Zeon's Olympic Quality Explained

Zeon Zoysia sod is so adaptable that it thrives in the heat of the lower South and cold winters of the upper South. It boasts a higher disease and insect resistance than some varieties of warm season grasses. It's soft and plush, yet easier to mow than Emerald because it doesn't require a reel mower.

Plus, it was literally in the Olympics! It was chosen as the official golf course grass of the 2016 games in Rio, Brazil.

Love fine-textured Zoysiagrass, but hate the upkeep? Choose Zeon.

  • Medium green color
  • Thin leaf blade (fine textured)
  • Likes more acidic pH than tall fescue (low pH) - depending on results of your soil test, there may be no need to raise the pH with lime
  • Slowing growing - needs less mowing than Tall Fescue & Bermudagrass
  • Mow with a reel, rotary, or robotic lawn mower
  • Drought tolerant; it goes dormant in extended drought, greening up again when rain returns

Zeon's other assets

  • Full sun; tolerant of partial shade or some bright filtered shade (pine shade or high shade)
  • After Elite Tall Fescue, Zeon is our second most shade tolerant turfgrass
  • Weed resistant due to Zeon's dense turf that crowds out weeds and other grasses
  • Requires less fertilization than other lawns, especially compared to Bermudagrasses
  • Zeon stripes pretty well, as seen in pictures herein

Where to Use Zeon Zoysia

  • Home lawns & commercial landscapes
  • Sports fields
  • Golf courses on fairways, tees, & rough
  • Resorts
  • Near the ocean due to its tolerance of salt spray
  • Zones 5b to 11a on the 2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map or Zones 1-4 on the Turfgrass Hardiness Map
