Cavalier Zoysia
forms a thick lawn with fine textured leaf blades(3-4mm) with a dark green color. Cavalier differs from other zoysia varieties because of its very fine, long, narrow leaf blades. Like Palisades, Cavalier requires less water and fertilizer while having comparable shade tolerance and producing a thicker turf than St. Augustine. Highly disease resistant, Cavalier is immune to tropical sod webworm, fall armyworm, tawny mole cricket, hunting billbug and differential grasshopper. Slightly susceptible to zoysia grass mite.
Mowing is a critical and often under appreciated
cultural practice:
  • Maintain Cavalier at 1.5-2.5" (2" is optimal)
  • Tolerates mowing to .5-.875 for sports turf/golf course applications - mow 2-3 times per week
  • Heights above 2.5" will reduce quality
  • Rotary mowers are preferred for heights 1" or higher
  • Reel mowers are preferred for heights below 1"
  • Mow every 5-7 days during the active growing season
  • Mow every 10-14 days, or as needed, during cooler weather
  • Never cut more than 1/3 of the total length of the blade at any one mowing
