– – What does Emerald Zoysia look like? I guess I’ll kind of do a comparison. Most people when asking that question are looking at leaf thickness and density of the plant.

Emerald Zoysia and Cavalier Zoysia are fine-bladed Zoysias. If you look at Bermuda grass, these fine-bladed Zoysia grass leaves look more like Bermuda grass than the St. Augustines. A St. Augustine grass blade is pretty thick in most cases, and the Bermuda grass and the Zoysias are a lot thinner.

Nobody is going to mistake Zoysia grass for Bermuda grass though because Bermuda grass has a different growing habit. The Zoysias a lot of times shoot straight up out of the ground. Other Houston-adapted grass varieties spread out laterally.

Emerald Zoysia Grass Can Look Like Bluegrass and Fescue

A lot of people we talk to really like the look of the Zoysias.  They move out of the transition zones of the United States where they’re used to the Fescues and Bluegrasses.  The Zoysias look more like those grasses than what we’re used to here in the Houston area.

The Cavalier Zoysia and the Emerald Zoysia are our fine-bladed Zoysias. The Palisades Zoysia has a little bit thicker blades to it.

Cavalier Zoysia and Emerald Zoysia Are Best Maintained with a Reel Mower

Palisades Zoysia in particular I think is easier to take care of and maintain. The fine-bladed Zoysias are traditionally a little harder to take care of as far as mowing. This doesn’t come specifically from my experience, but our farm, I talk to them on a regular basis and they’re the ones that grow and maintain the grasses and growing the fine-bladed Zoysias is a lot more expensive and a lot more effort.

The Palisades Zoysia, we have a lot more of that because it’s a lot more forgiving and a lot more similar to taking care of St. Augustines. So when people ask me about Zoysias I’m always going to try to push you to the Palisades Zoysia because I believe, if I was going to put a Zoysia in my yard, that’s the one it would be. I guess that’s the main point I would like to convey.
