Empire Zoysia grass is a warm season grass that produces a much denser turf than Bermuda.  Its dense turf is naturally more weed resistant and more drought-resistant than many other grass types.  Empire Zoysia combines soft-to-the-touch feel with lush green color and fine, tight-blade growth.  Homeowners and property managers also appreciate its many maintenance, environmental, and cost saving advantages.
