Understanding Kikuyu grass
Kikuyu grass is the most widely used variety that prefers full sun for a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight per day to thrive. Kikuyu grass is bright green in colour with coarse/rough leaf texture. Kikuyu grass is extremely easy to care for, because of its fast growth and spread, Kikuyu grass is perfect for replacing grass in bare patches, also have excellent wear ability. Kikuyu grass will grow well in a wide range of soil types.
Kikuyu lawn can be laid at any time of the year. Very important to install the lawn on the same day as delivered. Ensure you water your newly laid lawn daily in the beginning, preferably during the early mornings, to maintain good moisture. Fertilize your lawn every 8-10 weeks in the growing seasons. Regular mowing and fertilizing reduce weed completion. Spot treat with selective weed killer if weeds occur. Timeous treatment of a weed problem avoids weed infestations which are difficult to treat.
If your lawn has overgrown – when mowing be careful not to mow more than 1/3 of the leaf length at a time as this will put your grass under stress.
