Vegetative (Stolon), Sod, Plugs.
El Toro Zoysia is a dense medium-textured, highly durable turf which spreads by runners and grows more slowly than the hybrid Bermudas. El Toro adapts well to high heat and tolerates moderate shade. Its color is a lighter green when compared to most other species of turfgrass; it has a longer dormant period than Tifgreen and produces a medium thatch.
Use where a combination of shade tolerance and wear resistance is needed, also when high heat tolerance and low water use requirements are design priorities.
1" - 2", mowed weekly.
Moderate thatch build-up in full sun, minimal in shade; requires de-thatching every 2—3 years, depending on amount of sun.
