Nara™ Native Zoysia is a true all-rounder that performs under tough conditions, without sacrificing on looks or feel.
Native to Australia, Nara™ is naturally equipped to handle hot, dry climates, humid conditions and even the cold Canberra climate.
Evolution within the Australian environment has given it some distinct advantages – Nara™ is both naturally salt tolerant and more resistant to the pests and diseases that can affect Aussie lawns. It’s perfect for coastal areas, and can be used for beach and waterfront properties.
Nara™ is an efficient water user and highly drought tolerant . It’s an ideal choice for areas with low rainfall or council water restrictions.
Scientific Name: Zoysia macrantha
Cut to 2cm-5cm in sun, or 5cm-7cm in shade-lower cuts will resemble a Couch lawn, higher cuts will resemble a Fescue lawn with longer leaf blades.
Mow every 2 weeks in warmer months, and every 3 weeks in colder months.
Fertiliser is recommended twice a year, with an additional application if the lawn is subject to high levels of wear and tear.
Nara™ Native Zoysia is highly drought tolerant once established - but, like all plants, needs water. Requirements will vary depending on environmental factors. Be aware of a drying climate and water your lawn accordingly.
