STRONG
POINTS

This grass is resistant to most common diseases like rust, dollar spot, and brown patch. It is almost comparable to Bermuda when looking at drought tolerance. Empire recovers from damage quickly and uses the least amount of water to stay looking healthy of all of the zoysias that we have grown, Turns green quickly in the spring and keeps its color till the first hard freeze of the fall. It is resistant to Army worms and Spittle Bugs.

WEAK
POINTS

Not Many! Every few years there is a wave of Bill Bugs that can affect the grass. Preventative insecticide for grubs and worms can be applied in granular form. The aggressive horizontal nature of the grass can be positive to repairing any damage the grass might suffer. Sometimes it is difficult to keep out of shrub beds without using Round UP of some other grass killer.
