Zeon Zoysia

Most Atlanta homeowners are looking for a good shade tolerant grass for their backyard.

Fescue is shade tolerant, but that type of grass has trouble with high temperatures and drought.  Fescue also requires a lot of water and fungicides.

A relatively new alternative is Zeon Zoysia.

It is a warm season turf.  It goes dormant in the winter, but in the summer it handles the hot Georgia sun, even with no shade.  It also can handle as little as 4 hours of sunlight per day, even when it is filtered through trees.

Zoysia is thick, plush grass that prevents weeds by crowding them out.  It requires very little nitrogen — about 1/6th of the amount Bermuda requires.

A crucial factor for Zoysia is getting the ph level correct in your soil, and also being sure you don’t add too much nitrogen.

Sometimes called “the barefoot grass”, it is used on many golf courses and sports fields because of its great recovery rate.

This is why it is also a great choice for your backyard.
