The temperatures are going up from here on through the summer months so it’s out with the cold weather and in with vibrant colors and lush landscapes. Also, if you’re ready for new grass, this is the perfect time of year and we’ve got some great deals on Zoysia.

New Green With New Zoysia Grass

Kevin recently posted some before and after pictures on Facebook from a customer’s home where the team laid 8 pallets of new Zoysia grass. They also placed some rock and other touches to really transform the landscape. Click here to see Kevin’s Facebook post. Zoysia is a robust and hardy grass. It can withstand a bit of abuse and even unfriendly weather, and it’s more affordable than you might think. According to Wikipedia

Because they can tolerate wide variations in temperature, sunlight, and water, zoysia are widely used for lawns in temperate climates. They are used on golf courses to create fairways and teeing areas. Zoysia grasses stop erosion on slopes and are excellent at repelling weeds throughout the year. They resist disease and hold up well under traffic.

So we hope you agree with us that Zoysia is the best choice for new grass in your next landscape project.
