EMPIRE ZOYSIA

Empire is a beautiful Zoysia Japonica that has a deep green color in the summer and turns golden in the winter for a year round aesthetically pleasing color. Its leaf blade is about 5mm wide making it easier to mow with a rotary mower than other zoysias. Empire can be mowed at several different heights from 1/2' up to 2". The thick lush texture and its horizontal growth characteristic gives Empire the ability to "choke out" other grasses and weeds that might try to contaminate your lawn and this reduces the need for herbicides. Empire needs less than 3 lbs or nitrogen. In most cases you can apply a good slow release fertilizer in the spring and the grass will stay green all summer.
