Zoysiagrass is warm ­season turfgrass that has been used in Arkansas since the 1950s and is still gaining popularity.

It requires less mowing and fertilization but is tougher to mow and easier to keep out of flowerbeds than bermudagrass.

  • Traffic: good, slower growth than bermudas

  • Watering: tolerates drought, water deeply as needed
