Belair is medium course in texture, and has a dark blue green color, during the growing season. With its rapid spread rate, fall color retention and early spring growth it is superior to Meyer and other Zoysia grasses. It is easier to mow with homeowner rotary-type lawn mowers, then other Zoysia grass varieties and less prone to thatching. Belair covers faster has better rust resistance then Meyer and other selections. Spring green up is usually considerably earlier then other Zoysia grass varieties.

Zoysia has the most wear tolerance of all the current available turfgrass species in the United States and has buried good heat and drought hardiness. It's nitrogen requirements is fairly low and quite tolerant to shaded environments.
