EMPIRE™ is good in the shade and keeps a good winter colour and it can generally out-compete the weeds once established. EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA generally requires less watering and less mowing than any other commercially grown lawn in Australia.

Empire Zoysia Care & Maintenance

Great at Out Competing Weeds
Once EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA is well established, its dense growth makes it much harder for weeds to establish.

Salt Tolerance
EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA has excellent salt tolerance. It thrives near the coast and is good at tolerating salt spray.

Disease & Pest Tolerance
EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA is very resistant to turf diseases and pests and will generally not show symptoms of most common disease and pest problems that plague other turf varieties. It is especially resistant to lawn grubs that cause big problems to many other lawn types. NOTE: Empire is more lawn grub resistant than other turf types, but this does not mean it is immune to lawn grub. If symptoms similar to lawn grub are present, consult with your lawn care professional.

“EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA – It just keeps looking good”

EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA is a versatile, adaptable lawn, well suited to Australian conditions. EMPIRE has performed well in both sandy and clay soil types, with aggressive growth from its runners and rhizomes. It can be mown with a standard rotary mower due to its ideal leaf width and open growth habit.

This hard wearing, versatile turf grass thrives in all climatic regions of Australia, from Darwin to Tasmania, from Sydney to Perth, and would even survive in places where the temperature drops to 20 degrees below 0.

The Perfect Landscape Grass
Tough, easy to look after, and looks great, is soft to touch. With such little mowing required, it is the ideal lawn for slopes. EMPIRE Turf is ideal for home lawn, roadsides, amenity areas, sports and more.

EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA is the only grass in Australia that is hard wearing, yet low maintenance. Its deep root and rhizome system gives it unmatched toughness. If you want it to grow fast fertilise it, however if you want a slow growing, less mowing lawn that still wears well, lay off the fertilizer. With EMPIRE you have a choice, fast or slow. For most situations, yearly fertilising should be sufficient, but for higher wear areas fertilise more.

Tough and Hard-wearing
EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA has excellent fast growth across the ground. Its runners are fast and highly branching, which provides excellent recovery from wear. EMPIRE ZOYSIA is quickly becoming known as the tough, hard-wearing turf.

Less Mowing
Although EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA grows across the ground at a fast rate, its upwards leaf growth is less than most other commercially grown lawns in Australia. Ask for EMPIRE™ ZOYSIA. It grows fast across the ground for better wear tolerance, but one that grows more slowly upwards for less mowing.
