Why Sunnyvale Residents Should Choose Zoysia Grass 

Zoysia sod and grass is one of the best grasses known because of its little maintenance requirements. If you and your family are too preoccupied to handle general and regular lawn care than Zoysia is the perfect grass for your Sunnyvale lawn. It is also heavy traffic friendly should your family choose to play in the yard every day.  

All varieties of Zoysia are also perennial, meaning they come back year after year and since we are in the ideal climate for this species, it is another maintenance issue you don’t have to worry about once spring rolls around.
