Key Features

  • Empire™ Zoysia is one of the most popular Zoysia grasses in Australia due to its low maintenance.
  • Empire™ Zoysia once established, in most applications, has a very high drought tolerance and is quickly becoming known as a tough, hardwearing turf. 
  • Empire™ Zoysia can survive on natural rainfall and if left to its own devices, saves on longterm mowing, pesticides, de-thatching and fertiliser.
  • Empire™ Zoysia has improved pest and disease resistance and tolerates low to moderate salinity.
  • Empire™ Zoysia has excellent fast initial growth across the ground compared to other Zoysias. Its runners are highly branching, which provides excellent recovery from wear.
  • Empire™ Zoysia’s nickname is EZ grass and is commonly referred to as the “easy grass”.
  • Empire™ Zoysia has been proven to significantly strengthen soil by 48%, improving erosion control of roadsides, steep embankments, batters, stream embankment, retaining walls and foreshores compared to Couch (3.2%) and Kikuyu (9.7%) .
  • Empire™ Zoysia can endure long periods of non-attention, but when well maintained looks lush and maintains colour year-round, so is suited to a large range of commercial purposes.
  • Empire™ Zoysia meets the Erosion Control Australian Standard No# AS5181: 2017 – Use and installation of turf as an erosion, nutrient and sediment control measure.
