Empire Grass Plugs

Characteristics: Drought tolerant, barefoot
When you're seeking a thick blanket of deep green to make a striking appearance in your yard, you'll appreciate the superior performance and beauty of Empire Zoysia. Discovered in Brazil, amid the lush, tropical foliage, there's no wonder Empire thrives in both hot and humid as well as desert areas. You might not expect turf grass this strong to also be soft, but Empire beckons you to take barefoot walks across its plush carpet of densely packed blades. Especially created for family outings and backyard picnics, Empire welcomes a variety of activities without taking extensive wear and tear.

Tight blade growth also contributes to the depth of color found in Empire Zoysia. With its wide blades and luscious dark green hue that lasts through much of the winter, it's truly a turf grass that will make your neighbors jealous. You'll also enjoy greatly enhanced curb appeal for your home.

It is one of the few grasses rated to perform well in all zones. As hardy as it is attractive, Empire has a deep, thick root structure, and is more drought tolerant than most varieties of Zoysia once established. In addition, slow growth plus natural chinch bug and chemical resistance means your lawn will require less maintenance, mowing, and watering than with other types of warm season grass.

Durable enough for professional use, too, Empire is a favorite of homeowners as well as golf courses, theme parks, master planned communities, office complexes, and more.

Leave your shoes inside! Step onto the velvety softness of Empire Zoysia.

Order confirmation stated that order shipped on 3/13/2018. Information was incorrect as order did not ship until 3/16/2018. Paid for 2nd day delivery but that didn't happen because you held the order.

So far so good! August 13, 2017
Reviewer: Rachel M. from Richmond, VA United States  
Plugs arrived, plugs have been planted, and with proper watering I can't imagine they'll do anything other than grow. The trays are shipped one on top of the other (I ordered 2 -- thanks for the discount!) so of course the bottom tray appears a bit smushed. It's nothing a few days in the ground and little love won't fix.

No rating yet; 50% so far. 1 tray good, one not July 27, 2017
Reviewer: GARY KELLEY from Ocean Isle Beach, NC United States  
When I opened the package, the plugs on the tray on top were green and looked healthy, those in the tray underneath were yellow. I planted and watered plugs from both trays according to instructions within hours of their arrival, and have watered them three times daily since. Today, the plugs from the top tray look good, the plugs from the bottom tray look like they are dying.
