Sir Grange can be cylinder mown to 10 mm to 12 mm for high profile areas.
Zeon Zoysia® was used within the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero, Brazil on the golf course within its tees, fairways and roughs (not green). The breeder (Bladerunner Farms, Inc., USA) claims that Zeon Zoysia requires as little as 3 hours of direct sunlight for growing. Zeon Zoysia also produces less thatch than other zoysia varieties currently on the market. Sir Grange® is available commercially through Lawn Solutions Australia (LSA) growers.
