Cavalier is a fine-bladed Zoysia grass that grows a thick lush lawn.  Its dense growth pattern allows it to choke out weeds and provides a more uniform appearance than most other varieties. Cavalier demonstrates good shade tolerance and is able to resist many insects and diseases. It’s ability to thrive in varying conditions ranging from Southern Illinois down to the gulf coast makes it an excellent choice for lawns throughout the area. Cavalier is identified as the ‘future grass of choice for fairways in the cold weather/warm weather transition zone’ by many golf course architects.
