Kikuyu grass is extremely easy to take care of. It grows and spreads quickly and is the perfect turf plant to replace a lawn or cover up bare patches.
This type of grass is the ideal solution for dry spells, areas of high foot traffic and water restrictions. In areas where the climate is hot in summer and mild in winter, this is the ground cover you want in your garden.
TRANSPLANTING KIKUYU INSTANT LAWN
Kikuyu grass is very easy to propagate through transplanting. While it flourishes throughout the year, it will benefit from spring planting.
Planting Kikuyu runners is very easy and you can direct the runners to maximise coverage. Secondary runners will soon sprout and make the lawn denser.
Water often at the beginning, but less frequently as it becomes establish otherwise you’ll need to mow your lawn too frequently.
Kikuyu doesn’t like to be mowed too often or too short, so space mowing some time apart. It also doesn’t need fertiliser, as it grows well in any type of soil. In livestock fields, you’ll notice interesting grass mounds where it’s flourished from the animal droppings.
