Available Now. Zeon®, the “barefoot grass,” is a fine blade zoysia great for sun and shade. It is disease and insect resistant, and considered to be the replacement for Emerald Zoysia. Zeon® has a bright green color and will establish well in many different types of soil. Zeon® was tested in National Turfgrass Evaluation Programs and it produced less thatch than other varieties and showed late season color retention. For any application, Zeon® can be mowed with a standard rotary lawnmower. Zeon® is grown year-round at NG Turf and can be installed as dormant sod during winter months.
Zeon® cannot be grown from seed, so it must be planted from sod or sprigs. 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 fertilizer and follow label rates. Do not apply nitrogen containing fertilizers until the soil temperature at 4-inch depth is 65 degrees Fahrenheit and rising. Soil tests can be conducted through your county extension agent.

"The fairway lies offered by Zeon to-date have no comparison. The downside to Zeon fairways comes when you have to be a guest or play in a tournament elsewhere and are relegated to 419 or some other variety of Bermuda grass."
"Now that we have had Zeon for 4 years the membership and I could not be happier! The complements are overwhelming from the membership and their guests regarding the playability and appearance" The Club at Carlton Woods "A real testimony to the quality of the turf grass is the praise we get from our members and guests. Being a relatively new turf grass to be used on golf courses, most of our members and guests have never played on it, so it has a certain wow factor!"
"We have purchased Zeon zoysia for the past five years to place on newly constructed tees and to convert older tees from Bermuda to Zoysia. We have been very pleased not only with the quality of sod received but also the "end" product. Zeon has been a wonderful addition to our course and the members have been very pleased with the quality of turf. We have seen great results as far as golfers taking divots, the long lasting color extending well into the fall and earlier spring greenup. I hope to eventually convert all tee surfaces to Zeon zoysia in the near future."

"Zeon Zoysiagrass is a wonderful all around turfgrass. It is a great choice between the wider bladed Meyer but not as fine as Emerald. Very traffic tolerant, drought tolerant and durable. When installed properly this grass gives instant satisfaction."

"The Zeon zoysia I received from NG Turf has met and exceeded my expectations for this application, partial shade. The service I received from NG Turf helping me to choose the proper turf was exceptional."
