Ideal for ovals, large blocks and industrial estates. Kikuyu grass is characterised by a light green colour and succulent style texture. This lawn requires little maintenance, and once established, will survive on little water, with a natural ability to stop weeds taking hold. Thickness is 25mm. (Supplied shredded or as runners).
However, it can be invasive so it’s best used for commercial applications or contained within kerbed or paved areas.
Kikuyu is a great low maintenance choice for:
- Sporting ovals
- Parks & gardens
- Industrial settings
Kikuyu can even be used in Perth yards for good coverage and where there are no garden beds. The soft and springy nature of Kikuyu means it is often chosen as a sports turf to reduce injuries and falls during sporting activities. Its soft but hard wearing capabilities also make it a safe ground cover for children’s play areas.
Installation & Maintenance
Kikuyu grass is 25mm in thickness on the roll and is supplied shredded or in runners. Installation is simple and similar to our other varieties of Buffalo and Wintergreen lawns. Although hardy, we recommend preparing the area with yellow builders’ sand to give your new lawn the best chance at survival.
Once installed, the lawn is easy to grow and the established turf needs water, requiring the least amount of fertiliser out of any other lawn. Once established, Kikuyu will survive on little water and has a natural ability to stop weeds taking hold. More people are starting to realise the benefits of Kikuyu due to its fast growing and low maintenance requirements.
