The season is winding down. Many of us are looking forward to sitting back and relaxing during the winter months, but there are some end of season tasks that should be done.
It is time to put our lawn mowers away for the season, some homeowners are not happy about this. Many enjoy mowing their lawns whether it is to relieve stress, get some exercise or just for the joy of it. We all have to admit there is something special about a freshly mowed lawn.
There are some end of season chores that still need to be done. Be sure to empty any gas from you lawn mower. Examine electrical cords to any of your lawn tools, checking for any breaks, nicks or exposed wires. Also now is the time to clean and service your grass trimmer and other yard tools, so they are ready for the spring.
Many of us will welcome the silence of lawn mowers, but miss the smell of a fresh cut lawn and a chance to walk barefoot on the soft green grass. Switching into the new season replaced with falling leaves, the holiday’s right around the corner and the landscape maybe even covered in pure white snow.
I hope everyone will enjoy the fall and winter seasons and for those who don’t, spring will be here before you know it!

This is a decision that has to be made when choosing what type of grass you want for your lawn. Someone once said, “No matter what type of grass you have you will have a brown lawn at some point of the year.” Why does the grass go brown? Depending on the type of grass you have would determine when and why it turns brown.
Zoysia is a warm weather grass. As a way to protect itself from the cold temperatures Zoysia goes dormant (to sleep) for the winter. When the grass is dormant it turns a light honey brown color, it is not dead. When dormant the grass does not require any type of care or maintenance. It will keep its well manicured look, since it does stop growing during this time. Not all zoysia grasses can withstand the colder climates. Amazoy zoysia is the most cold tolerant of all of the zoysia grasses, it can withstand temperatures to 30 below zero.
On the other hand, cool weather grasses do not go dormant in the winter, however many do go dormant in the hot dry summer months. These grasses turn brown and even die when the temperatures get really hot. The only way to keep them green is to water, water and water the lawn! Extra watering is becoming more difficult to do because of the droughts, cost of water, watering restrictions, well limitations and the time it takes to stay on schedule.
Do I want my grass to be green in the winter months, when it is not used much and in some areas covered with snow? Or, do I want my grass to be green and lush in the summer months when it is used the most?
If you want green grass in the summer then you want a warm weather grass like Amazoy zoysia grass!

Do you need a grass to stand up to the children playing and the dogs running? Some grasses are soft, some thicker and some are more durable. Zoysia is one grass that combines all three. A lawn filled with Amazoy zoysia grass is a good solution for heavy traffic areas.
Once Amazoy zoysia grass is established you will not need to worry about how rough the children play on the grass or how fast and hard the dog runs through the lawn. Amazoy not only grows upward but also outward and has a very tight growth pattern. This makes the grass extremely durable and it feels like you are walking on a plush carpet. Think of how much better this would be for the children if they were to take a tumble or fall. It’s almost like there is a built in cushion.
Because zoysia is a spreading grass and repairs itself, if a bare area would appear, the grass will automatically start to fill in the space. In time you will never know that there was any damage at all.
Another great thing about Amazoy zoysia grass is that it is not only durable but also more tolerant to pet urine than most grasses. Even if an area does start to yellow, apply a little lime on the spot and it will help neutralize the ground. This will help the zoysia turn back to its luscious green color.
Amazoy zoysia grass is ideal for your children and pets.
