Are you looking for a lush lawn? A durable sports field? Is your landscape shady? Are you close to the ocean where salt spray is an issue? We’ve got a grass for that.
Every landscape has unique requirements. That’s why Hawaiian Turfgrass grows several different varieties of grasses, each with its own benefits and characteristics.
Zeon ZoysiaZoysia Grass
Zeon® is a fine-bladed Zoysiagrass. It has a beautiful dark green color and soft leaf texture making it a true barefoot lawn grass. Zeon is highly drought tolerant and has low fertilizer requirements. It is considered a lower maintenance grass here in Hawaii. Zeon was developed in Texas by Bladerunner Farms and has the unique distinction of being the grass used on the fairways of the Olympic Golf Couse during the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Zeon was even featured in the New York Times for its role in helping the Olympic Committee create a more sustainable Olympics. Zeon is recommended for lawns and golf courses.
El Toro ZoysiaZoysia Grass
El Toro Zoysia has long been the standard grass for Honolulu home lawns. El Toro is a medium bladed grass. It is drought tolerant, highly durable, and light green in color. El Toro thrives in full sun and tolerates light shade. It was developed by the University of California – Riverside.
Captiva St. AugustineSt. Augustine Grass
A true low-mow grass, Captiva® St. Augustine is a slow vertical grower which greatly reduces the frequency of mowing. The grass has a deep dark green color, and it shows resistance to the Southern Chinch Bug. The widest bladed variety of all the grasses we grow at Hawaiian Turfgrass, Captiva St. Augustine is still considered a semi-dwarf. Captiva is very shade tolerant. It was developed by turfgrass researchers at the University of Florida.
