Zoysia Tenuifolia is known by many Common Names including;
**Korean Velvet Grass**
**No Mow Grass**
Zoysia Tenuifolia is mainly utilised as a ground cover in Oriental Gardens, among rocks and ponds, and makes a spectacular architectural specimen as it can also grow over rocks and other structures in the garden. It is also used to great effect when planted between pavers.
Anyone who has visited the Hunter Valley Gardens will tell you it looks magnificent in the oriental setting.
Zoysia Tenuifolia is also a great lawn and sloping bank grass species, but is much more appealing when used as an ornamental grass ground cover, as it possesses an unusual clumping or mounding appearance.
It makes an excellent ground cover for Japanese style gardens where you want to simulate a moss style landscape or where trees make establishing a conventional lawn difficult.
Zoysia Tenuifolia is mainly used as a ground cover because of its tendency to grow in an undulating way, creating ripples and small hills right up to the trunks of trees in deep shade. Because they have such good shade tolerance, newly established Zoysias will easily adjust to shading as the surrounding Shrubs and trees mature.
Zoysia grasses are fairly drought-tolerant and can remain green for four to five weeks without water, even on a sand-based soil. They cope so well with drought because they in-roll their leaves to conserve moisture and develop a very deep root system.
DWARF MONDO GRASS
A species of Ophiopogon native to Japan, is a hardy plant with shiny dark green leaves that will tolerate very dry conditions and is frost tolerant.
Dwarf Mondo is normally grown as an ornamental plant and makes an excellent groundcover.
Dwarf Mondo will flourish in full sun or shade; tolerate poor soils, over watering or over fertilizing. It multiplies rapidly to form a dense, dark green border. It also looks fabulous when planted en-masse.
If you are not a gardener then Dwarf Mondo Grass is the plant for you. Dwarf Mondo needs virtually no maintenance and will multiply quickly to form a beautiful garden border.
Dwarf Mondo grows to approximately 75mm (3") tall and makes a very trendy Landscape Grass as it can be planted around pavers, concrete tiles and slabs or in rockeries to soften the sometimes harsh appearance of these structures.
They will thrive in a range of soils but to keep them looking their Dark Green / Shiny best, try to water them at least every three or four days during any really hot or dry periods.
