Hawaiian Turfgrass state's exclusive producer of Zeon Zoysia Grass

MILILANI, Hawaii -- Hawaiian Turfgrass is proud to have been named the State of Hawaii's exclusive licensed sod producer of Zeon Zoysiagrass, the #1 Selling Zoysia in America. The grass is grown at the Hawaiian Turfgrass sod farm in Miliani on O'ahu. Zeon Zoysia sod will be ready for harvest in the summer of 2014. Zeon Zoysia is suitable for use as a home lawn yet is fine-textured and durable enough for use on sports fields and golf courses.

"I am thrilled to bring the nation's number one selling zoysia grass to the islands of Hawaii. Zeon Zoysia is university tested for its beauty, quality and drought tolerance. Zeon Zoysia will be sold as a certified sod, which means is goes through state inspections prior to being planted on our farm, it is inspected all through the production process by a third party and is inspected again by our staff prior to harvest," said Sean Aukanai'i Fong, manager of Hawaiian Turfgrass.

Zeon Zoysia was developed by Texas-based Bladerunner Farms, the nation's largest privately owned zoysiagrass research facility. The grass was licensed to Hawaiian Turfgrass by The Turfgrass Group.

In nationwide tests through NTEP (National Turfgrass Evaluation Program), Zeon Zoysia ranked #1 in turf quality. NTEP also confirmed that Zeon Zoysia produces far less thatch than other Zoysia grasses tested.

Zeon Zoysia also holds the distinction of being the grass chosen as the playing surface of the golf course currently under construction for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Benefits of Zeon Zoysia:

• Versatile: Use for lawns, golf courses, sports fields, resorts
• Adaptable: Thrives in a wide range of soil conditions
• Drought tolerant: Less water requirements
• Salt Tolerant: In salty environments, simply mow the grass and remove the clippings to remediate the soil
• Easy Care: Less thatch than other standard zoysias
