Eureka Kikuyu Eureka Kikuyu is a popular drought tolerant grass suitable for warmer climates. A vigorous grower that loves full sun (requires at least 6 hours) and is perfect for high traffic areas. It has a high ability to self-repair so is the best choice for kids or dogs. Aggressive grass and the runners will make their way underground and subsequently into garden beds and under paths if not kept under control.

Sir Walter Buffalo Sir Walter Buffalo has above-ground runners which makes it quick repairing and our most popular selling turf. This variety of turf thrives best with at least 3 hours of direct sunlight as it is a drought tolerant variety. It may lose some colour in the winter, best not to cut it when coming into the colder months.
