Empire Zoysia Sod for Your Central Florida Lawn

Apr 13, 2016 | Turfgrass Products

Florida is a Southern state that has a particularly tough time when it comes to achieving naturally growing, aesthetically pleasing grass. Incredibly hot temperatures lead to dried out lawns and bugs seeking shelter and moisture from the grass.
If you’re looking for a long-term solution to your sparse yard, then Empire Zoysia sod may be the perfect match for your needs.
Resodding your lawn with Empire Zoysia sod can benefit your lawn and life in a few different ways:
  • Reduce dirt and allergens getting tracked into your home
    Minimize weed growth
  • Give your house more curb appeal
  • Prevents mud and washouts
  • Eliminates your lawn headaches

While no one type of sod will be completely perfect, it is best to pick a turfgrass that addresses your most common problems. Empire is as tough of a turfgrass as it is attractive, and has a deep, thick root structure, making it more drought tolerant than most varieties of Zoysia grass. This is especially beneficial in the Florida weather. This turfgrass does well in moderate shaded areas with at least six hours of daily sunlight 

In addition, this turfgrass is resistant to chinch bugs.
