Palisades Zoysia is a medium blade Zoysia grass that’s quickly become popular to Texas homeowners due to its visually pleasing appearance and versatility.  With a leaf blade smaller than St. Augustine and larger than Bermudagrass, Palisades does well in a wide range of lawn environments and soil types.  Palisades performs better in the shade than most other warm season grasses but needs adequate sunlight to thrive. When properly maintained, Palisades grows an extensive root system which allows for better drought tolerance and exhibits a dense green turf.
