Empire Zoysia has a reputation for being one of the most drought-tolerant, water-efficient turf varieties available in Australia. Zoysia turf is a soft, easy-to-manage lawn that grows Australia-wide and features a fine leaf with strong wear tolerance, making it ideal for homes virtually anywhere from Darwin to Hobart and Sydney to Perth. Two of its prominent features include its good, strong green colour throughout autumn and winter and its minimal maintenance year-round in terms of mowing, watering and fertilising.

EMPIRE™ Zoysia is easy growing and adaptable. It’s well-suited to Australian conditions, from Darwin to Tasmania, and from Sydney to Perth.
EMPIRE™ performs well in all soil types, including clay and sandy soils. The deep root and underground runner system allows it to endure extreme climates, therefore EMPIRE™ can handle heat and humidity as well as sub-zero temperatures.
Requiring less mowing, fertiliser and weeding than other grass types, EMPIRE™ Zoysia has earnt its title as “the low maintenance lawn”.
EMPIRE™ is an efficient water user and highly drought tolerant. It’s an ideal choice for areas with low rainfall or council water restrictions.
EMPIRE™ Zoysia is highly drought tolerant once established – but, like all plants, needs water. Requirements will vary depending on environmental factors. Be aware of a drying climate and water your lawn accordingly.
Remember, infrequent deep watering of your lawn promotes a healthy lawn and a strong deep-rooted system. Watering time is best in the early morning.
