A new lawn for the holidays

By Caroline Wright Posted in: BackyardExterior

With the addition of a new ordering option on its website, Hawaiian Turfgrass has made shopping for a gorgeous, healthy lawn easier than it’s ever been.

“Clients have always been able to schedule delivery, but homeowners who want to install their own lawns can now order their turf and schedule pickup, all online,” reports Sean Aukanaii Fong, owner of Hawaiian Turfgrass. “It’s simple and quick, and really easy to do.”

Located at hawaiianturfgrass.com, the website includes comprehensive information about the five turfgrass varieties offered by the company. A handy area calculator uses satellite mapping to help homeowners determine the square footage of their lawns. And a brand-new video offers sincere thanks to the readers of this newspaper, who chose Hawaiian Turfgrass as “Hawaii’s Best” Lawn Installation Company for 2020. The video features aerial views of the company’s 36-acre Mililani farm, with sweeping overhead shots of the turf-grass cultivated there.

With five grasses at different price points, Hawaiian Turfgrass offers a lawn for every budget. The company’s most popular variety is El Toro Zoysia, and licensed specialty grasses include Tifgrand Bermuda, Seastar Seashore Paspalum, Captiva St. Augustine, and Zeon Zoysia.

“We’re pretty excited about our Captiva grass,” says Fong. “It’s a semi-dwarf, fine-blade St. Augustine, shorter and not as wide as the common variety. As a dwarf grass, it needs less mowing, because it doesn’t grow as fast. No grass grows in complete shade, but Captiva St. Augustine is the best choice for shaded areas.”

Between shade tolerance, improved pest and disease resistance, reduced maintenance, and its gorgeous dark green color, Captiva St. Augustine is becoming increasingly popular among island homeowners, according to Fong.

“Our Zeon Zoysia is another variety that turns heads,” he adds. “It’s soft and barefoot-friendly, and it truly has that ‘wow’ factor.

There’s minimal thatch; it’s fine-bladed and green from the ground up.”

Known for its hardiness and easy maintenance, Zeon Zoysia makes a magnificent residential lawn. It’s bred to be more disease and insect-resistant than many other varieties. Additionally, Zeon Zoysia is salt-tolerant and grows well near beaches, needing little water and fertilizer.

Each variety sold by Hawaiian Turfgrass has been carefully bred for improved traits: less mowing, watering, and fertilizer; fewer insect and disease problems; and a superior look.

“Knowing how much daily shade and sunlight your yard receives, and the kind of time and effort you want to put into it each week, are important,” says Fong. “Visiting our website is a bit like going to a carpet store. We provide tons of information to help you choose the right grass for your area, and maintain it properly.”

Chosen by Honolulu Star-Advertiser readers as Hawaii’s Best Lawn Installation Company for 2020, Hawaiian Turfgrass offers complete turnkey lawn services: site prep, irrigation, delivery, and installation.
