Zeon Zoysia

Zeon Zoysia is another of the improved zoysia cultivars chosen for its superior genetic characteristics by BladeRunner Farms. Discovered by David Doguet, this fine-textured progeny came from selections collected by USDA breeder Jack Murray, in Kobe, Japan. Zeon was engineered and developed to provide the landscape industry with a superior fine-bladed zoysia, with increased shade tolerance, low incidence of thatch production, and an accelerated rate of spread. In addition, unlike Emerald Zoysia, Zeon is extremely low-maintenance and can be mowed using a standard rotary type of machine.

Zeon Zoysia is widely considered to be the most beautiful of all the warm season turf grasses on the market because of the beautiful green color it has after it is fully established. It's considered to be the replacement for Emerald Zoysia. In addition to being one of the most beautiful turf grasses that we offer at Atlanta Sod Farms, Zeon Zoysia is also very practical. It can handle full sun and moderate shade, possesses a fast spread rate, and is resistant to both insects and disease. Zeon Zoysia is one of the many types of Zoysia spread all around the world. Other species can be found in many of the Asian countries, Australia, America, and islands located in the Pacific Ocean. It has been observed that it can survive in diversified climates, which is a reason it is present in so many countries all over the globe. This dark colored grass has a lower level of maintenance which makes it ideal to use on golf courses. It has a few characteristics that are unique, it is the first one to turn green at the beginning of spring season. Another quality of this grass we grow at Atlanta Sod Farm is that it can very well adjust to any type of soil. It can turn into brown in the drought but can quickly recover during the rainy season. The roots of Zeon Zoysia go deep into the ground from where it absorbs the moisture to keep it hydrated and evergreen. This is the reason why it has a swift rate of growth and can fight back diseases and pests. It can also be used for sports turfs where there is medium foot traffic and is widely used by the landscape industry to produce amazing scenery.
