Geographic Location: Where You Are Matters

One of the great things about our Amazoy Zoysia grass plugs is that they grow in a multitude of growing regions and climates. The plugs can survive through an array of conditions: heat, cold, drought, and rain. Because of this, we ship our grass plugs throughout the continental United States, with the exception of Washington and Oregon (our years of experience with grass plugs shows that the conditions there are not conducive to the successful growth of Amazoy Zoysia) Zoysia loves hot and dry weather, which contributes to the reason why Zoysia can stay green, even in the hottest of summers.

Because of the variety of terrain and temperaments of our country, certain states and regions have different growing seasons, as seen in the map below. So depending on your location, your shipment of plugs will arrive to you when it is best to plant them. We also take weather and field conditions into consideration, so if you are having weather that will inhibit the successful growth of Zoysia, we will wait until better weather arrives to send them to you. Conditions on our farm can affect shipment, too; if our farms are too wet, we are unable to harvest. Mother Nature holds influence over when shipment occurs.

To see your region’s optimal planting season or when your plugs will ship to you, check out our map here or below.

I Can Order Grass Online!?

You may be wondering how such a thing is possible. Well, it is, and we pride ourselves on providing you zoysia grass plugs through online ordering. Here are a few things to consider when thinking about ordering online.

Maximum Order

It just so happens that Amazoy is pretty popular. And because only so much is available per season, we must limit the maximum plug order to 13,300 plugs at one time. However, re-orders can be made every 60 days. To calculate how much you might need, check out our plug calculator.

Shipping

We ship throughout the continental United States, with the exception of Washington and Oregon. These two states’ wet weather conditions are not conducive to the successful growth of Amazoy zoysia.

Credit card charge will only be processed when the order has been harvested and on its way to you.

Guarantee

Our years of experience and confidence in our methods allows us to make a unique guarantee not traditionally found in the garden industry. Our guarantee is that we will replace any plugs that fail to grow within 45 days of planting.

Retail Store

If you would prefer to pick up your plugs rather than have them shipped directly to you, we do have a retail store, located in Taneytown, Maryland. Our retail store hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, (and Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm between late March and the end of June). All orders are harvested individually and a call (410-756-2311) the day before visiting the farm will ensure your grass is ready when you arrive.
