As island families find themselves spending more time at home, it’s become very clear to many homeowners that a lush green lawn offers an inviting backdrop for all kinds of activities.

And no lawn gets more rave reviews than Zeon Zoysia. Soft and verdant, this beautiful grass, sold exclusively in Hawaii by Hawaiian Turfgrass, provides a barefoot-friendly surface for family picnics, keiki playtime, even a baby’s first steps.


“The old zoysia grass was tricky to maintain and unpleasant underfoot, but Zeon Zoysia is a dream!” says Sean Aukanaii Fong, owner of Hawaiian Turfgrass. “Kids and pets love it because it’s really nice to walk on, and homeowners can’t believe how easy it is to mow and maintain.”

Working and learning from home is exponentially more pleasant when your home is surrounded by a lush, healthy lawn. A truly great yard can set the stage for fun and functional outdoor spaces, like sitting and dining areas, barbecue stations, recreational areas and play zones.

“Great outdoor living spaces can add so much quality to family time,” says Fong. “If you’re looking for the ultimate turfgrass for your personal oasis, Zeon Zoysia is a brilliant choice.”


Salt-tolerant and known for its hardiness, Zeon Zoysia is bred to be more disease- and insect-resistant than many other varieties. It grows well near beaches and requires little water or fertilizer. Lawns planted with Zeon Zoysia should be mown every one to two weeks with a reel mower set at 3/4 inches or less.

“This variety is fine-bladed and green from the ground up, with minimal thatch,” says Fong. “It makes a truly fantastic residential lawn.”

But Zeon Zoysia is celebrated for much more than its qualities as the perfect picnic grass. Developed by turfgrass expert David Doguet of Bladerunner Farms in Poteet, Texas, Zeon Zoysia has become a favorite of golfers worldwide. The variety was featured on the course designed for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, as well as at the Tiger Woods-designed Bluejack National and at Cordillera Ranch, the Jack Nicklaus Signature course, both in Texas. Zeon Zoysia is also featured at Grove XXIII, the Florida course fronted by basketball legend Michael Jordan.
