Why Pick Cavalier Zoysia Grass Sod
Our Cavalier Zoysia grass provides you with a thick, fine-textured lawn with a dark green color. Cavalier Zoysia grass has very fine long and narrow leaf blades that set it apart from Palisades Zoysia and Emerald Zoysia. Like our Palisades Zoysia grass, our Cavalier Zoysia requires less water and fertilizer than St. Augustine grass.
Cavalier Zoysia grass is highly disease resistant. It’s immune to tropical sod webworms, fall army worms, tawny mole crickets, hunting billbug, and differential grasshoppers. It’s slightly susceptible to the Zoysia grass mite.
Mowing Requirements for Cavalier Zoysia Grass
The best mowing height for Cavalier is between 1.5 and 2.5 inches. About 2 inches is optimal. It does tolerate mowing as short as 0.5 to 0.875 inches for sports turf and golf turf applications, but it should be mowed two to three times a week if kept that short. Mowing heights over 2.5 inches will reduce the quality of the turf.
Rotary mowers are preferred for mowing to an inch or higher. Reel mowers are best if you mow your grass shorter than an inch. You should mow every five to seven days during the active growing season and every 10 to 14 days or as needed during the cooler months of the year.
Never cut more than a third of the total length of the grass at any one mowing. You’ll stress your grass if you cut too much at one time.
Price of Cavalier Zoysia Grass
In 2019, our price for Cavalier Zoysia is $240 per pallet. A pallet of grass covers 450 square feet or 50 square yards. Zoysia is more expensive than our other grass varieties for several reasons. One reason is that our family farm has to pay license fees to the organizations that developed the grass. Another reason for the price difference is that Zoysia is a slow growing grass so we only get one crop of Zoysia per year on the same land that will produce two crops of St. Augustine or Bermuda grass.
