How Does Zoysia Grass Work?
Zoysia growth is done by sending out “shoots” or “stolons” (as the pros calls them). These stolons spread out to cover your yard with a lush green lawn. The roots grow very deeply in the soil and this helps it survive in unfavourable conditions.
This is not a tall growing grass, so you will not need to mow your lawn nearly as often as traditional grasses. When planting zoysia plugs, you need to plant them six inches apart and they will spread out to fill in your grass.
One of the nice benefits of the Amazoy grass plugs, is that once you plant it, you will not need to reseed or touch up like you do with other grasses.
Reduces the amount of watering significantly (you will need to water it once you have planted it so that the roots can take effect, after that, you’re good to go).
- Very low maintenance (no watering, reduces mowing, no pesticides required)
- It is drought resistant
- Replaces weeds and crabgrass
- Never needs replacing
