Eureka Kikuyu (Kik), is a medium leaf, warm season grass that is suitable for high traffic areas, making it the perfect turf for kids to play on, and dogs who love to dig. What makes Kikuyu unique is its ability to self-repair quickly, as a result of its fast growing nature.
This means it will need to be mown more frequently compared to other grass types such as Sir Walter Buffalo, or Couch for example. If not maintained properly, Kikuyu can easily make its way underground into garden beds and paths. In order to maintain this lawn variety, we recommend keeping your mowing length between 25-50mm in length, this will ensure your lawn remains well kept without causing any damage.
How do I look after Kikuyu grass in winter?
Kikuyu is a warm season grass, and you will get the best performance out of it across Spring and Summer when exposed to warm sunlight frequently. Once the warmer seasons have passed, Kikuyu will still continue to grow for several weeks, and slow down throughout Autumn and Winter. To get the most out of your lawn we suggest mowing as little as possible - but if needed we recommend mowing slightly higher than you normally would.
How often should you mow kikuyu?
During the warmer months we recommend aiming to mow your lawn every 5-7 days. That way this will keep your grass looking healthy and well kept.
Can you over water kikuyu?
Yes, it is possible to over water your lawn. Generally we recommend watering your lawn once a week or every 7 to 10 days depending on how fast it is growing. In the winter months minimal watering is required in order to maintain kikuyu.
