Zeon Zoysia is an improved zoysia grass cultivar 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. Zeon is extremely low maintenance and can be mowed using a standard rotary type machine.
Zeon zoysia is truly, “Barefoot Grass”. This fine-textured progeny came from selections collected by USDA research geneticist Jack Murray in Kobe, Japan. Zeon was developed for the purpose of providing the turfgrass industry with a user friendly, superior fine-bladed zoysia with increased shade tolerance, low incidence of thatch production and an accelerated rate of spread.
Although Zeon has become the number one choice for zoysiagrass golf course fairways, it has also established itself within landscape construction circles as a much sought after premium home lawn selection. This is due to its extremely low maintenance and fertility requirements. Zeon can be easily maintained using any standard rotary type lawnmower.
