Palisades is a medium textured, high density turf suitable for home lawns, golf fairways and roughs, sports fields, industrial parks, and highway medians. Palisades is also noted for its shade tolerance and low water use requirements. The most shade tolerant of the zoysia varieties we carry.
When compared to St. Augustine, Palisades has a comparable shade tolerance, requires less water and fertilizer, and is a thicker, denser turf grass. During extremely dry periods, Palisades only requires one to two deep irrigations per month.
