Zoysia grass seed is a warm season grass species that forms an extremely drought tolerant lawn due to its deep root system, and it will respond quickly to irrigation after a prolonged dry spell. Zoysia grass has a fine texture and forms a thick mat once it is established, although it can take up to 2 to 3 years for a zoysia lawn to be fully established due to its very slow growth rates. Because of these properties, established zoysia lawns do well for home lawns and hold up well under heavier traffic, including for lower impact sport fields, although the slower growth rates mean it may not recover as quickly for high impact sports fields such as football or soccer.
