08 Dec Empire Turf vs. Centipede | Sod Solutions
The Empire Turf® Allure
Empire Turf really does enable you to ‘elevate your expectations.’ If you’ve previously settled on Centipede grass, you have simply accepted a far inferior natural surface. Empire is the proven Zoysia grass that has established a new standard. Its hardiness, texture and year-round color put Empire in a class all its own.
Empire Zoysia grass has been engineered grown and to suit homeowners needs and commercial applications alike. You’ll find Empire Turf underfoot at many of the most respected major golf courses as well as some of the most attractive homes throughout the South. Its thick, bouncy texture mimics carpeting. The fact that it is weed resistant and requires relatively little water and fertilization to grow thick, lush and green adds to its already incredible appeal.
Empire Turf vs Centipede
There is simply no comparison between Empire Turf grass and Centipede grass. Centipede, with its weed-like features, browns up badly in the fall season. It is scratchy to the touch and unappealing to the eyes. Empire, on the other hand, maintains its deep blue-green color longer and is hardier, more disease resistant and more drought tolerant. Its lush texture welcomes your bare feet and calls out for family play time.
Empire Turf’s appeal to discerning golf course superintendents is well documented. Empire Turf is one of the best low-maintenance sod products available today. The grass thrives on 1 inch of rain or irrigation a week and tolerates drought conditions surprisingly well. It resists both disease and attacks from fungus and insects. Empire welcomes heavy traffic and flourishes when cut to 1-2 inches with either a standard rotary or reel mower. Perfect for sun or shade, Empire Turf® grass provides golf courses and homeowners alike with a richly colored, thick, soft-leafed alternative.
