Zoysia Growth: Good Things Come to Those Who Wait
posted on March 4th, 2010 by Steve Schug
How much time have you spent messing around with grass seeds that you hoped would improve your lawn? Having a beautiful lawn may not be quick fix. The solution starts with a product that is appropriate for your needs.
Zoysia is the right solution for sunny and partly shady lawns. When planted one plug per square foot, (the minimum we recommend), Amazoy Zoysia will take two to three growing seasons (2 to 3 years) to fill in completely. If you choose to plant plugs closer together, your estimated growth time will decrease. If you want to calculate how many plugs you may need, check out our plug calculator.
Two to three years may sound like a lot, but Zoysia’s process of growth is part of its strength. It actually grows differently than other grasses, sending our runners or “stolons,” expanding sideways more than it grows tall. Zoysia’s slow spreading tendencies help it to become strong and sturdy, withstanding heavy traffic and erosion. So over those few growing seasons, Zoysia will grow lush, even, and green, while simultaneously crowding out the summer weeds, ultimately creating a beautiful lawn for you to enjoy.
