Platinum Zoysia grass – a hardy solution

If a finer blade grass is your preference, then go no further than Platinum Zoysia grass. Selected by Lawn Solutions Australia as an excellent performing lawn grass, Platinum Zoysia turf has a relatively fine leaf which is soft to touch, provides excellent wear tolerance and thrives in extreme heat and humidity.

Platinum Zoysia performs fairly well in the shade and keeps good winter colour and it can generally outcompete weeds once established. Choose our zoysia if you want less watering and less mowing than most other lawn types in Australia.

Exhibiting a slow growth habit, you won’t need to mow or do as much other maintenance with Platinum Zoysia. It has also adapted well to hotter climates by having the ability to roll its leaves to conserve water, thereby increasing its drought tolerance which is a trait normally only exhibited in broader leafed grass varieties.

Turn up heat

Zoysias are warm season grasses and are well adapted to tropical, sub-tropical and warm temperate conditions. They are fine to medium textured grasses with leaves up to 5mm wide and 40-50mm long.

Zoysia grasses spread both by stolons and by rhizomes, and are noted for their relatively slow growth rate. Because of this, Zoysia grasses are slow to establish, but once established they are aggressive and compete well with weeds.

Platinum Zoysia turf maintenance

Platinum Zoysia is relatively easy to maintain. It requires less mowing than many varieties e.g. once every few weeks, or longer in the winter months.

Water Platinum Zoysia during very hot or dry spells, but it shouldn’t require regular watering at other times.

Every 2-3 years you should mow your Zoysia lawn very low to de-thatch it. Especially when de-thatching, ensure a catcher is fitted to the mower, or clippings are cleared away afterward. This should be done at the start of the growing season to ensure your lawn recovers quickly.

You should fertilise your Platinum Zoysia lawn a few times a year at the start of autumn and winter to keep it looking lush and green, or more frequently if preferred although this will increase the mowing frequency required.
