Requirements, Irrigation & Characteristics

Light Requirements:

Meyer Zoysia has moderate to good shade tolerance but grows best in full sun. Meyer Zoysia can tolerate as little as 5 hours of sun per day. Meyer Zoysia grass does not perform well around the root systems of large trees so is not suitable as an underplanting in these areas. It would be best to plant an ornamental groundcover plant under a large tree.


Though drought tolerant, to maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Meyer Zoysia needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.
