In this series we will explore 4 different types of grasses: Zeon Zoysia, Fescue, Bermuda, and Sunbelt Bluegrass. As we move through each one, learning their unique characteristics, you will gain insight into which grass types will be suitable for your next project.
One thing to note is choosing the right type of grass for your environment is important. Your climate and exposure to sunlight are going to be key factors in determining the right grass for the best outcome.
The first grass type we will explore is Zeon Zoysia.
Zeon Zoysia is a warm season grass that grows best in climates such as the southern United States. While doing well in the heat and sun, this type of grass can also manage well in lower temperatures. Zeon Zoysia is barefoot-friendly and delicate to the touch. Its thick and compact turf helps it to thrive in a variety of soil types. These features also deter weeds due to its dense root system, creating a uniform, blanket-like lawn.
Choosing the best grass is also dependent upon its use. Because of its durability and carpet-like feel underfoot, this particular variety of zoysia is great for residential lawns and households with small children, pets, and high foot-traffic in general. Zeon is also a great choice for business landscaping, athletic fields, and golf course uses like roughs, tees & fairways.
What Sets Zeon Zoysia Apart from the Rest?
Zeon Zoysia is one of the first grasses to green in the spring and starts to go dormant after the first frost of the year. This type of grass is easy to maintain, requiring low maintenance and attention. Unlike other grasses, Zeon’s tolerance to heat and cooler temperatures make it a good selection for a variety of climates.
Regular and frequent watering will be the most important part of building a strong foundation for your lawn. For Zeon sod installation, it’s imperative that you keep it moist and damp for the first two weeks at minimum. During this time, the roots will begin to grow both vertically and horizontally, creating a thick, sturdy foundation. After this period, watering only once or twice a day for about 20 mins will suffice. If you notice any browning, you aren’t watering enough.
Fertilization & Mowing
As far as nutrients, when new turf is laid, there is generally enough fertilizer to get the job done. After the initial install, you’ll want to fertilize twice a year, once in Spring and once in the Fall. For your first mowing, set the blades at the highest setting. Do not cut more than a third of the grass height. After the first mowing you can continue to cut to your preference.
In a snap you can have a beautiful, lush, soft lawn thanks to this Zoysia sod grass variety. Zeon offers a number of benefits for applications and uses and is easy to care for. Contact us today for current pricing on sod installation and let us help your yard reach its full potential!
