Requirements, Irrigation & Characteristics
Zorro Zoysia is the one of the most shade tolerant warm season grasses available in Georgia and the Atlanta Area. Handling as little as 4 hours of sun, Zorro Zoysia has been a suitable replacement for many Fescue yards in Metro Atlanta.
Though drought tolerant, to maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Zorro Zoysia needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.
