Thriving in full sun, Zeon also has some shade tolerance

As a Zoysiagrass, Zeon naturally thrives in full-on, all-day long, baking hot sun. However, it offers some shade tolerance, as long as it gets at least 4 to 5 hours of full sun. We have articles to help you determine if your yard is too shady for grass and we offer tips on how to make it a little more sunny, if necessary.

Zeon Zoysia is a Warm-Season Lawn

The term "warm season" means it's green during the warm growing season; going dormant after frost. Even though it's dormant during winter, it can still be walked and played on.

Zeon's Olympic Quality Explained

The best performing fine-textured Zoysia

Zeon Zoysia sod is so adaptable that it thrives in the heat of the lower South and cold winters of the upper South. It boasts a higher shade tolerance and disease and insect resistance than other thin-bladed Zoysias. It's soft and plush, yet easier to mow than other fine-textured Zoysias because it doesn't require a reel mower. Plus, it was literally in the Olympics! It was chosen as the official golf course grass of the 2016 games in Rio, Brazil.
