Sod Installation




Zeon
Zoysia

 

Zeon is a medium to fine textured zoysiagrass primarily used for areas such as home lawns, sports fields and golf courses.  It is also being used on high-end commercial sites.

Characteristics:  Zeon is compatible with a wide range of soil conditions.  It can handle full sun or light to medium shade.  It has good drought tolerance and very few insects or disease problems.

Zeon would be the replacement grass for the old standard, Emerald zoysia.

Installation and Maintenance: Zeon cannot be grown from seed.  Therefore, it must be planted as plugs, sprigs or sod.  Sprig planting is recommended only for experienced landscapers.  Plugs are our preferred planting method for those of you who can not solid sod your site.  Solid sodding is, by far, the best way to go.

Water the grass as you plant it.  Do not wait until the entire site is planted to water.

The site should be watered heavily for at least two weeks to promote 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, with a rotary mower, is 1-2 inches.

Recommended annual fertilization rate is one to two pounds nitrogen per 1,000 square feet.  Use split applications with one pound nitrogen in the spring to encourage new growth and one pound of nitrogen in mid-to-late summer to promote healthy growth into the fall and winter.
 


JaMur
Zoysiagrass
 

JaMur is a medium to coarse textured zoysiagrass primarily developed for use in high traffic, high visibility applications.  JaMur is similar in appearance to a dwarf variety of St. Augustine, and has many of the same uses.  It is ideal for residential, commercial, and industrial sites.

Characteristics: JaMur is compatible with a wide range of soil conditions, and is comparable to St. Augustine in shade tolerance.  In the past, Zoysias were considered to be very slow to spread and establish.  JaMur is not your typical Zoysia.  Expect full coverage from plugs planted on one foot centers in about sixteen weeks instead of the two years it takes some of the older varieties.

Due to the fact JAMur spreads faster and we are able to harvest more frequently, the price is considerably less than Zoysias of the past.

Installation and Maintenance: JaMur can not be grown from seed.  Therefore, actual plant material must be used.  Solid sodding is, bar far, the best way to go.

Water the grass as you plant it.  Do not wait until the entire site is planted to water.

The site should be watered heavily for at least two weeks to promote 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, with a rotary mower, is 2-3 inches.

Recommended annual fertilization rate is one to two pounds nitrogen per 1,000 square feet.  Use split applications with one pound nitrogen in the spring to encourage new growth and one pound of nitrogen in mid-to-late summer to promote healthy growth into the fall and winter.
