When you want a true WOW factor, Zeon is your go-to grass! For your high-end sites, Zeon will provide the stunning appearance that will leave golf course members impressed and make homeowners the envy of the neighborhood.

Best uses for this variety include golf fairways and tees, moderate-use sports fields (baseball and softball) and high-end residential lawns and commercial landscapes. This grass has low fertility requirements and produces less thatch than other zoysias, which means less maintenance and cost savings. Zeon has excellent shard tolerance and exceptional drought tolerance. It is best suited to Zones 7B, 8A and 8B.

Zeon zoysiagrass performs best with four to six hours of sun and is best maintained at 0.375” to 1” (reel mower) or 1.0” to 2.0” (rotary mower). Zeon is naturally resistant to most insects but may be susceptible to large patch in spring and fall. Fungicide can be used preventatively (high-end applications) or curatively on lower maintenance applications. Always follow label instructions when using these treatments.

Zeon was developed by Bladerunner Farms in Poteet, Texas and was released to licensed growers in 1996. Contact us today if you need a WOW factor for your sod project!
