Zenith Zoysia Grass Seed
Zenith is medium-textured and has dark green leaves. It creates a dense, slow-growing, low-maintenance turfgrass that can tolerate traffic and wear better than most warm season lawns. Zenith is commonly used in both commercial and residential landscapes, sport fields, golf courses, roadsides, and medians. Uniquely, it tolerates extreme heat and cold and is the best Zoysia for cooler climates. It?s well adapted for climates from the southern coast of the US to the upper transition zone.
Planting instructions are enclosed with each order of Zenith Zoysia. It is very important that the seed bed remain moist until the seeds have germinated (14-21 days after planting).

When To Seed?
The best time to sow Zenith seeds is in mid-spring after the last frosts are expected.
Your latest summer or fall Zenith seed planting date is best determined by your growing zone. The standard guideline is to plant Zenith seed a MINIMUM of 60 days before you expect the first frost in the fall. If seed is planted too late in your growing season, even if it germinates, it might not have sufficient time to become hardy enough to survive fall and winter conditions.
How Much Seed?
Using plenty of seed is the least expensive part of establishing a good lawn. "Saving" on the cost of seed results in spending more on watering and weeding. Our recommended rates produce a good lawn in 2-3 months of summer growth.
Make a sketch of your lot and then measure with a tape the area you wish to seed. Calculate the square feet of seed needed by multiplying length times the width of the area measured. Deduct a reasonable amount for buildings, paved drives, and walks.
