Zoysia is a great choice for warmer climates. Zoysia grass is a soft, dense, attractive home turf grass option. When established and properly cared for, Zoysia is heat- and-drought-resistant and can stand up to heavy foot traffic.
Zoysia grass has a thin bladed leaf that forms a very lush lawn. It shares the drought and shade resistance of the other varieties. This grass has a fine, soft texture and can be left un-mowed as it only grows to a height of 6–12 inches (15–30 cm). When left un-mowed, it forms a humpy convoluted surface which is sometimes used in oriental landscapes.
