This is a great grass. It’s shade tolerant, heat resistant and drought resistant. We can bring it up to an inch and a half and cut it with a regular rotary mower. We have had great response to EMPIRE from our owners. They like the look and feel if it because it is similar to the types of grass used in the north, where many of our homeowners are from. EMPIRE is widely used for residential, commercial and golfside areas at Reunion Resort and Club near Orlando.
