Compadre Zoysia Grass Seed Blend
McKays Compadre Zoysia Seed Blend is perhaps the most high quality grass seeds at McKays.
Zoysia is one of the most shade tolerant grasses that survive in hotter climates. If you live in the hotter parts of Australia and have a partly shaded area, Zoysia is your best option.
It provides a beautiful lush cover, and being an Asian grass, it thrives in the warmer climates of the Northern parts of Australia. Germination will take from 2-4 weeks, depending on weather conditions. It is a warm season grass, best suited to northern parts of Australia.
In this blend, the Annual ryegrass provides a safety bed- which protects and nurtures the growth of Zoysia. The annual ryegrass will eventually die off after 12 months (or sooner due to warmer weather) allowing the Zoysia’s runners to take over and fill out the other areas.
For best results, plant in a climate that ranges between 22-26 degrees Celsius, and fertilize at least a couple times a year with McKay’s Slow Release Fertiliser. If your are living in parts of Australia where the temperate regularly exceeds 28 degrees, we recommend going with the Pure Compadre Zoysia as the Annual Rye will not survive long in temperatures over 30 Degrees.
