Zoysia Grass Plugs
Zoysia grass provides the benefits of using less water than bluegrass or fescue and in general requires less maintenance.
Nature Hills Nursery offers plugs of Zenith zoysia. We suggest using plugs because the seed is very slow to germinate, making it difficult to establish a lawn in one season.
Zenith zoysia is also an improved variety with excellent color and exhibits good cold tolerance. Our trays have 70 plugs and will cover 70 sq. ft. if placed on 12 inch centers or 18 sq. ft. if placed on 6 inch centers.
Zoysia spreads very slowly compared to our turf-type buffalograss so the closer the spacing the better.
Our plugs are a healthy 1 ½ inches square X 2 ¼ inches deep.
How Many Zoysia Plug Trays Should I Order? Zenith® Zoysia Grass is sold by the tray. There are 70 plugs in each tray.
Recommended spacing is 6 to 12 inches. Once you have figured your square footage and the desired spacing, multiply your square footage by the appropriate number from the table below to find the number of plugs needed.
