Exquisitely lovely, yet resilient enough to withstand traffic from carts and cleats, Zeon masters the complex balancing act between lush beauty and prime performance. An excellent alternative to bermudagrass, Zeon provides a premium playing surface for golf course fairways and tees. However, it grows more slowly than bermudagrass, reducing mowing and edging. It also requires far less nitrogen than most bermudas, slashing fertilization expenses by up to 50%.

Simply the most beautiful grass we have ever seen, Zeon surpasses the most discriminating expectations and is truly in a class by itself. When good simply isn’t good enough, Zeon Zoysia Grass gives you the “wow factor.”
