Platinum Zoysia Grass

Platinum Zoysia grass is one stubborn grass, making it perfect for our Australian climate. It’s soft to the touch, doesn’t require too much attention and looks similar to modern soft leaf buffalo grasses but with a finer leaf. Platinum Zoysia thrives in full sunlight and hot, humid environments but doesn’t shy away from the shade.

Insect, disease and chemicals don’t stand a chance against Platinum Zoysia. Resistant to all of these, this turf makes it easy to combat weeds. Platinum Zoysia also requires less mowing, making it optimum for slopes and landscaping.

Appearance:

Platinum Zoysia Grass has a finer blade than most types of grass. With leaves up to 5mm wide and 40-50mm long, Platinum Zoysia is hardy and maintains a good winter colour.

Maintenance:

Platinum Zoysia is extremely low maintenance. It requires less watering and mowing than most other lawn types in Australia. It thrives in extreme heat and humidity but also tolerates shade fairly well. Once it has established, Platinum Zoysia Grass will outcompete weeds practically all of the time. Due to its relatively slow growth rate, Platinum Zoysia is a low maintenance, durable grass.

Versatility:

Well adapted to tropical, sub-tropical and warm temperate climates, Platinum Zoysia Grass is a suitable choice for the entirety of Australia. Its ability to roll leaves in order to save water makes Platinum Zoysia extremely drought tolerant and prepared for our tough summers.
