Zoysia Lawn Grass Seed Ideal for Homeowners Across the Country

DADE CITY, FL--(Marketwire - January 7, 2011) - Hancock Seed Company, one of the nation's leading experts in lawn, pasture and wildlife seed, is now offering eight different types of Zoysia Grass Seed.

Originating from areas in Southeast Asia, China and Japan, Zoysia grass is dark green, fine textured and soft. The Zoysia grass varieties range in texture from coarse to fine, and because of its denseness, the grass is fairly resistant to disease, drought, weeds and insects if maintained properly.

"A Zoysia grass lawn will provide a family with an economical, elegant, lush and soft, easy to maintain lawn after established," Chris Hancock, Vice President of Hancock Seed Company said. "Not only can families benefit from this grass, but you can also find it commonly used on golf courses, lawns, parks and athletic fields."

Zoysia is one of the first warm season grasses to recover in the spring, and it can be planted in the south, as far north as Chicago and as far west as California. Because of its slow growing characteristic, Zoysia is easy to establish and makes for a lower maintenance lawn. Lawns planted with sprigs or plugs can take up to two years to fully establish, but with Hancock seed offering Zoysia in seed form, theses lawns will be quicker to develop.
