EMPIRE Turf® Zoysia is the most successful zoysiagrass worldwide. This revolutionary zoysiagrass has an emerald green color and a soft textured wide blade. Bred in the hot, humid climate of Brazil, Empire can grow in a wide variety of soil and climate conditions and is easy to maintain. It features excellent wear tolerance, requires less mowing and chemical applications and is chinch bug resistant. Empire is used in commercial landscapes, home lawns and golf tee boxes and roughs. EMPIRE is The Proven Zoysiagrass®, thriving in areas where others are not well adapted. Developed by Sod Solutions, Inc., EMPIRE Turf elevates the standards and expectations of specifiers, landscapers, golf course designers, sports turf managers and homeowners with low maintenance across a wide spectrum of applications. It exhibits moderate shade tolerance typical of most zoysias and is the first zoysia to demonstrate improved tolerance to brown patch when compared to Meyer Zoysia in side-by-side plantings. Additionally, EMPIRE is highly tolerant of most herbicides making it easier to control weeds during production and for the end user.
