Meyer Z-52 is the answer for anyone in the
Nation who would rather be out playing golf than tending the
yard but still wants a yard that looks perfect. It is also very easy to plant unlike Zoysia that
grows from the newer Zoysia Seeds. Originally developed in Beltsville, Maryland by the United States Department
of Agriculture and the United States Golf Associaton, it is both winter hardy and very drought
resistant. It's thick lush carpet chokes out weeds and requires much less
mowing and virtually no watering when established.
Less fertilizing and no need for chemical applications are also
advantages to look forward to. This wonderful grass
originally gained popularity with homeowners who found it to be a greatly
superior surface for golfing. Not only does it hold up under foot
traffic it also heals itself. You really will believe you're
walking on a carpet in all seasons. No more mud being tracked in by kids or dogs! For further
information and to see a picture of our sturdy solid steel Plugger installation tool you use
to plant your plugs, please refer to the
Meyer Z-52 Zoysia is a hybrid and therefore cannot
be reproduced by seed. The most popular
method for homeowners to establish their lawns is vegatatively by use of Plugs.
Plugs of zoysiagrass grow from the edges of the plant, putting out runners or stolons
in all directions but only on the ground. They do not go underground as bermuda grasses do.
The more surface area you have for them to grow from the more rapidly they will establish.
About 25 years ago there was a study done at the University of Purdue. Dr. Daniels, head of the project,
showed Meyer Z-52 can grow an inch each day. This was in ideal laboratory conditions yet we
have been able to replicate this for many years.
Our Zoysia Plugs are healthy 3 square inch zoysia plants. As Zoysia runners grow towards each other, each runner has what is called a node every so often along it's length. It kind of resembles a knuckle. Each node puts down a root and for all practical purposes is then an individual plant. The average "inter-nodule" length is about 1 inch. So it is quite possible in a 1 square inch plug, you will not have nodes. This activity is in no way similar to Bermudagrass.
