Emerald Zoysia


Emerald Zoysia is the cadillac of lawn grasses. An artificially bred hybrid released by Dr. Forbes several years after Meyer, Emerald produces an extremely dense, fine textured turf of true emerald green color.


  • Water your new lawn to keep it moist for a period of 2 weeks or until sod is rooted.
  • Mow as soon as your new lawn is rooted - at the recommended height(see table below).
  • Fertilize your new lawn once rooted.

Once your new lawn is rooted follow the chart below.

Mow when grass is this tall: 2"5cm
Set cutting height of mower to: 1.5"3.7cm

Mow with sharp mower blades.

Water to supplement rainfall shortages only. Avoid fixed timer irrigations settings. Zoysia best performs when it receives approximately 1 inch of water per week. If one or more inches of rainfall occur in a week,additional irrigation is not necessary. Do not water by over watering.
