Platinum Zoysia exhibits a narrow leaf mid-way between a couch and buffalo grass. It is very unique and is significantly more drought tolerant than any other variety due its deeper root system. Platinum Zoysia is not as tolerant to shade as the Sir Walter buffalo but is significantly more shade tolerant then the Nullarbor Couch. Its winter colour is slightly better than the Nullarbor Couch but does not compare to the Sir Walter Buffalo. It’s a hard wearing and low maintenance lawn which does not need a lot of mowing. These characteristics make Platinum Zoysia very suitable for commercial jobs.
