Eureka Kikuyu oversown with Rye is now availabe and at 100% colour
This is a drought tolerant turf that has been oversown with Rye Grass so that it maintains it's colour throughout the colder months.
However, the most popular Winter turf is the lush green grass RTF - Rhizomatous Tall Fescue.
This is a Cool Season (Evergreen) grass that can be installed any time of the year.
The RTF is green all year around. It is a favourite because of its lush green appearance all year around. It is important to water your Fescue grasses regularly to make sure that they stay green and to prevent them dying in the warmer Summer months - RTF is currently at 100% colour.

This turf requires more regular watering than other drought tolerant varieties.
