In this weeks turf tip we look at the difference between two turf varieties, Sir Grange Zoysia and Empire Zoysia.


Sir Grange

When you want a tip-top lawn, the look of it either makes or breaks the deal.

If you are looking for a fine leafed variety in Brisbane, Sir Grange Zoysia is the one-stop shop when it comes to looks. Hand selected from over 10,000 different cultivars it is a truly unique fine leafed variety that is an absolute gem to look at. Not only its looks will win you over, but it is also a true barefoot grass.

If fine leafed varieties are not your thing, Empire Zoysia is the way to go. Empire Zoysia looks halfway between Sir Walter DNA Certified and Nullarbor Couch.



With small backyards and overhanging trees, it will be important to pick a turf variety that is shade tolerant for your space.

Sir Grange Zoysia is the perfect premium shade tolerant lawn. Not only being able to handle full sun it only requires as little as 3 hours of direct sunlight per day.

Empire Zoysia is semi-shade tolerant variety which has decent shade tolerance, but grows best in sun.




We know how painful it can be to maintain a lawn. Picking a variety that requires less mowing can be a true task for homeowners.

Sir Grange is a true low maintenance lawn. It only requires 50% less mowing and 75% less fertiliser than other varieties. Even better you can ditch the mower and go for a luscious long look with Sir Grange Zoysia.

Empire Zoysia will need a bit more maintenance as it needs more mowing in the hotter months as it thrives the most then.

Wear Tolerance


Wear, wear, wear. Wear can be very strenuous on a lawn and it is best to pick a variety that can handle it best.

Sir Grange Zoysia is a true marvel when it comes to wear, it has a high tolerance to wear and foot traffic.

Empire Zoysia is not as tolerant to wear as Sir Grange Zoysia.
