If you’re the sort of person who notices a gorgeous, verdantly green lawn, you’ve undoubtedly seen El Toro Zoysia.

This spectacularly hardy turfgrass is planted all over Oahu — on residential lawns, common areas in commercial developments and even in city parks. In fact, El Toro Zoysia has been Hawaii’s most popular turfgrass for the past 15 or 20 years.


“El Toro Zoysia has been the gold standard for home lawns on this island for a long time, and for good reason,” comments Sean Fong, owner of Hawaiian Turfgrass. “It’s just about the most homeowner-friendly grass on the market.”


Developed in 1986 by the University of California, Riverside, El Toro Zoysia was bred for a number of qualities that make it practically ideal for conditions on Oahu. It’s superior in terms of drought and shade tolerance, reduced thatch, and insect and disease resistance.

“It’s also known for being low-maintenance, which makes it really popular with homeowners who don’t want to spend hours and hours each week on lawn care,” Fong says.


Fong recommends reel-mowing a lawn planted with El Toro Zoysia about every one to two weeks, with the blade height set at three-quarters of an inch, and watering three or four times per week. Soft under both bare feet and tender paws, this medium blade-width variety thrives in five or more hours of direct sunlight each day.


With six and a half acres of lush, beautiful, bright green grass, Thomas Square in Honolulu is a great place to check out El Toro Zoysia. Planted by Hawaiian Turfgrass in May 2017, the new grass provided a spectacular rejuvenation for Hawaii’s oldest park. Additionally, all of the common areas in the new developments in Ewa and Kapolei are planted with El Toro Zoysia.

Fong says one of the best things about this variety is its quick establishment in the soil.


“El Toro is very aggressive,” he says. “As soon as it makes contact with the ground, it just explodes! It took only about three months for Thomas Square to fill in completely.”
