Empire has performed well in both sandy and clay soil types, with aggressive growth from its runners and rhizomes. It can be mown with a standard rotary mower due to its ideal leaf width and open growth habit.
Empire Zoysia has a deep root and rhizome system providing it with unmatched toughness. If you want a fast growing lawn fertilise, however if you want a slow growing lawn that still wears well and requires less mowing, simply limit the fertiliser. This turf allows you the choice of growth options - fast or slow. For most situations, yearly fertilising should be sufficient. If however, you have a higher wear area, then you will need to fertilise more frequently.
