Emerald was released in 1955 by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA. 60 plus years later it is still #1 for home lawns.
Emerald Zoysia is a fine-bladed, extremely dense turf that is noted for its dark green color. Emerald is one of the slowest growing Zoysia grasses making mowing every 7-10 days in the growing season one of its best attributes. Commonly referred to as the “Cadillac” of turf, Emerald is the ideal turf for a home lawn. Other characteristics include cold tolerance, drought tolerance, shade tolerance and low fertilizer requirements.
