JaMur Zoysia Grass

Ensure the success of your next high-traffic turf project by laying JaMur sod. JaMur is drought-resistant and hardy, making it ideal for residential, commercial, and industrial areas that will endure heavy foot traffic. JaMur grows densely, uses less water than many similar varieties, and can recover easily from moderate traffic. 
  • Use: Residential and Commercial
  • Hot Weather Tolerance: Good
  • Shade Tolerance: Good – requires at least 3 hours of filtered sun per day
  • Wear Resistance: Excellent
  • Salt Tolerance: Good
  • Recovery From Injury: Excellent
  • Winter Color: Dormant
  • Mowing Height: 2″ Medium
  • Disease, Weed & Insect Resistance: A well-maintained lawn will provide the best weed control but JaMur responds exceptionally well to Iron if problems do arise.
  • Soil and Fertilizer Needs: Recommended annual fertilization rate is 1-2 lbs. of Nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft.  Use split applications with 1 lb of Nitrogen in the spring to encourage new growth and 1 lb of Nitrogen in mid-to-late summer to promote healthy growth into the fall and winter
  • Watering: Apply 1” of water as a deep soaking every 4-7 days during hot or dry periods.  Avoid frequent, shallow watering after sod is established.
  • Mowing: Needs to be mowed every 5 to 7 days during the growing season at a mowing height of 2-3” for a high quality lawn, mow too low and weeds are likely to gain a foothold.
  • Fungicides: Tolerant to Iron applications, Chipco 26019, Banner, Prostar, Lynx and Eagle.  Fall applications of Banner, Daconil or Bayleton to prevent rust to zoysia lawns.

Emerald Zoysia

Your residential and commercial lawns will draw high praise once Emerald Zoysia takes root. This dense, fine species should be cut consistently for a polished landscape, but if left uncut, it acquires a gentle rolling look often featured in Oriental landscaping. This versatility makes it an attractive option for those willing to invest proper maintenance. 
    • Drought Tolerance: Excellent
    • Hot Weather Tolerance: Good
    • Cold Weather Tolerance: Excellent
    • Shade Tolerance: Good
    • Wear Resistance: Excellent
    • Mowing Height: 3/4″ to 2 ½″
  • Soil and Fertilizer Needs:

    Fertilize with a Lawn Food 16-4-8 + Iron and Pelletized Dolomitic Limestone. Apply between 2 and 4 pounds of nitrogen per 1000 square feet annually, during the growing season. Select a fertilizer that is labeled for use on zoysia grass lawns. Do not apply fertilizer to wet turf to avoid burning. Too much fertility will result in a thatchy, unhealthy lawn and increased disease risk. Supplemental application of Iron will improve grass color.

  • Watering: Water to supplement rainfall shortages only. Avoid fixed timer irrigation settings. Though drought tolerant, Zoysia best performs when it receives approximately 1 inch of water per week. If one or more inches of rainfall occur in a week, additional irrigation is not necessary. (Example: if 1/2 inch of rain occurs within a growing week, apply 1/2 inch by irrigation.) Do not waste water by over watering; avoid run-off and standing water for any period of time.

  • Mowing: Mow at 1.5 cutting height. Mow no more than 1/3 of the leaf off at one mowing. Use sharp mower blades and catch and remove clippings. Mow with a rotary or reel mower. Less frequent mowing requirements – mowing may be required on a 7 to 10 day interval.

  • Weed, Insect And Disease Control: Zoysia’s dense growth can reduce the weed population but to be sure, use of a pre-emergent herbicide, recommended for use on zoysia lawns on the label, is strongly recommended in the spring and fall. Pests can become a problem, especially if zoysia is not growing healthily (too much fertility or water, etc.). Zoysia Patch disease (Rhizoctonia fungus) can be a problem in over-fertilized lawns. Leaf rust is a lesser problem. Grubs and bill bugs (plus mole crickets in the Lower South) are soil-borne insects which can cause damage.

419 Bermuda

From a stroll through the local park to Super Bowl Sunday, 419 Bermuda has proven itself as the South’s hardiest sod variety. It is the ideal selection for high-traffic applications as it recuperates from abuse like no other. 419 Bermuda tolerates drought and resists weeds. When provided with full sun, this species is a star in its own right.
    • Best Performance in Full Sun Light
    • Drought Tolerance: Excellent
    • Hot Weather Tolerance: Excellent
    • Wear Resistance: Excellent
    • Disease, Weed & Insect Resistance: Excellent
    • Retains Good Color under Stress
    • Medium to Fine Texture
  • Soil and Fertilizer Needs: To maintain its beauty, color, and density, 419 Bermuda requires a consistent monthly fertilization program. During the spring, summer, and fall months it should be fertilized with 3/4 to 1 pound of nitrogen applied to each 1,000 square feet of lawn. Read and follow all instructions regarding fertilizer use and application.

  • Watering: To avoid drying out and enable the new sod to root down, newly planted 419 Bermuda should be watered daily and kept wet during the first 7-10 days. Once the new sod has rooted into the soil, watering frequency should be reduced. Due to varying soil and climate conditions, it is difficult to recommend a definite watering schedule. However, a deep soaking every 5-7 days is generally adequate during the growing season. Desert environments may require more frequent deep waterings.

  • Mowing: 419 Bermuda should be mowed at least weekly during the growing season with a reel mower. Clippings are best removed. It should be mowed to a height of 1/2 to 3/4 inches. Avoid scalping.

  • Weed, Insect And Disease Control: 419 Bermuda is virtually free of weeds, insects, and disease when it is delivered. However, in some installations, weed and insect problems may occur from close proximity to neighboring lawns having these problems. Various cultural practices may be used to reduce these problems; however, should chemical controls become required, they should be used in accordance with the written instructions provided by the manufacturer.

Celebration Bermuda

If shade is unavoidable in the location of your next sports turf project, look no further than Celebration Bermuda. This turfgrass species is similar in hardiness to 419 Bermuda, but actually requires less frequent mowing. This variety grows thickly and blue-green in color, making it a top choice of university and professional sports associations.
  • Hot Weather Tolerance: Excellent
  • Drought Resistance: Excellent
  • Cold Weather Tolerance: Good
  • Shade Tolerance: Fair
  • Wear Resistance: Excellent
  • Salt Tolerance: Excellent
  • Recovery From Injury: Excellent
  • Fall Color Retention: Excellent
  • Spring Greenup: Excellent
  • Mowing Height: .5″ to 1″
  • Diseases: Good Resistance
  • Weed Control: Very Good
  • Insects: Good Resistance
  • Watering: Water requirements are greatly dependent on soil type, season, geography and other factors. Ensure irrigation systems are working properly and covering all areas. Make routine observations of the landscape and learn the signs (i.e.,wilting) that indicate when water is required. Shaded areas and heavy soils require less water than full-sun areas and sandy soils. Infrequent deep watering maximizes drought resistance and tolerance. Early morning hours are the optimal time to irrigate. Nighttime watering is not suggested.
  • Mowing:

    Spring and Summer- Mow 0.5−2” with standard rotary or reel mower every 5−7 days during active growing season. Vertical mowing may be performed to renovate. Shorter heights require regular and more frequent mowing.

    Fall and Winter- Mow 0.5−2” (1” is optimal) with standard rotary or reel mower every 10-14 days or as needed during cooler weather. Vertical mowing may be performed to renovate. Shorter heights require regular and more frequent mowing.
