EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA grows all around Australia, is easy to maintain, tolerates wear and tear, but is soft to touch. Empire will thrive in the heat, but also grows in the shade. It will remain nice and green all year round, and once established is relatively unlikely to allow weeds to invade. It doesn’t need much fertilizer.
EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA has great winter colour when compared to other turf varieties. EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA has strong and fast growth across the ground, its runners are fast and branch out which provides excellent recovery from wear. It is a tough, hard wearing turf variety.
You won’t have to mow as much because EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA grows more horizontally than other turf.
Once established, the thick strong growth resists weeds better than other turfs. Empire is also salt tolerant so you can plant near the coast and salt water pools as well.
EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA is resistant to diseases and pests, especially lawn grubs. You may still get these diseases but they won’t cause as much trouble as in other turf varieties. EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA will also tolerate up to 30% shade in high wear areas, so if you have a few spots like this in your yard, no worries. If your yard is very shady, check out our other turfs for more suitable options.
