Available Now. El Toro Zoysia grows well in both sun and shade. It has the widest blade of our zoysias, but produces very little thatch. El Toro’s dark green color is great for home lawns, commercial installations and golf courses. El Toro is grown year-round at NG Turf and can be installed as dormant sod during winter months.
Sod is the best way for instant beauty and a lush yard. Water the sod as you lay it. Do not wait until you are finished to water it. It will take about two to three weeks for complete establishment.
After the establishment period is over, keep a regular schedule of watering and mowing, and we think that you will be extremely pleased with the quality of your turf. Recommended mowing height is 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches. Follow recommendations on the soil test report. If the soil was not tested, use any turf fertlizer and follow label rates. Do not apply nitrogen containing fertilizers until the soil temperature at 4-inch depth is 65 degrees Farenheit and rising. Soil tests can be conducted through your county extension agent.
