Augusta Zoysia Lawn has just arrived on the market and has quickly become a solid performing Zoysia matrella that offers exceptional fine-leaf, drought and shade tolerance combined with low maintenance. This user-friendly, deep green coloured grass creates a compact smart looking lawn that suits any environment – from residential, parklands & sporting fields. Augusta Zoysia Lawn is recognised for its high shade tolerance and is ideal for those wanting a low maintenance lawn that requires less water, mowing and fertiliser. Augusta’s deep root system also means it is an efficient water user and exceptionally suitable for drought prone regions and an ideal choice for areas with low rainfall or council water restrictions. Once normal rainfall returns Augusta is quick to green-up. Augusta prides itself on having a higher disease and insect resistance compared to many other warm season grasses. Augusta Zoysia’s dense growth reduces much of the weed population.
