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.

Best shipment yet January 21, 2019
Reviewer: D. Blake from Jacksonville FL United States  
This was my 4or 5th order in the last year. This was the greenest set of trays . Price, shipping speed and quality are great. I suspect winter time ma6 be slower and less demand .

Zoysia plugs January 20, 2019
Reviewer: Leonardo Almarza from Plantation, FL United States  
I needed some plugs to patch up a bald spot on the front of my house.  So I order some plugs, since I wasn’t sure where they were going to come from, I paided for 2 day delivery.  I live in South Florida, so the plugs arrived overnight, they were in great shape, I dugged up some holes for them and put a teaspoon of Milorganite in each hole and they are looking better then my existing lawn.  It should be into the 40’s tonight let’s see how they hold up.

Empire Zoysia Grass Plugs November 14, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Keller, TX United States  
I was happy to find zoysia grass plugs available online. I only wanted one tray of plugs to get zoysia started in my small yard as  a test. In my local area, I could find only large quantities of zoysia sod, much more than I needed. Shipping took a bit longer than I had expected, but I wasn't in a huge hurry so that was okay. The tray of plugs arrived in good condition, and after a week in the ground, they seem to be thriving. I'm a happy customer.
