Kikuyu is a self sufficient, drought tolerant lawn that will thrive in a range of soil types. In summer months Kikuyu is known for its aggressive growth, covering quickly with runners. This aggressive growth enables Kikuyu to withstand repeated use and enables it to repair itself from damage. It is commonly found in parks, schools and home lawns and is the ideal choice for dogs. Kikuyu is a proven all-round performer in the Victorian market and may be maintained at a mowing height of 15-25mm.

Why have a Great Lawn?
Lawns help us to relax, are aesthetically pleasing and reduce glare and traffic noise. Lawns help beautify the landscape and provide a sense of community pride.
What are the benefits of a lawn?
Lawns provide a relatively safe area for children to play and are a low cost ‘injury prevention’ surface for games and sports. They allow rainfall to replenish groundwater for trees and shrubs. They are effective in soil erosion control.
When should I first cut my lawn?
Let the grass grow to a height of 5 to 6cm before the first cut and then only reduce the height by a third.
