Zoysia sod has a dark green color and turns a brownish yellow in the winter. It is similar to Bermuda grass in that it is thick, resistant to high traffic, and commonly used for golf courses and parks. It is also very salt tolerant like Bermuda grass and can be grown along the coast where soil is salty and sandy. It resembles Bermuda sod in appearance, but has a spongier texture than Bermuda grass. Zoysia requires less fertilizer than Bermuda. Zoysia sod is named after an 18th century Austrian botanist named Karl von Zois. Zoysia grass originates from Japan, China, and other parts of Southeast Asia. It has been grown in sod form in Japan since the 1100’s. It is popular throughout Asia. A U.S. botanist named Dr. C.V. Piper brought the grass to the U.S. from Manila in 1911. Because of this, it can also be known as Manila grass. Piper found that Zoysia was plentiful along the coasts of the Philippines. Only two varieties of Zoysia grass, Zenith and Compadre, can grow well from seed form. Because of the slow germination of many of the varieties of Zoysia, it is usually only sold in sod form.
