Kikuyu

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.

Kikuyu


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.

  • Soil – ordinary
  • The most widely used variety
  • Vigorous grower
  • Suitable for full sun, not shade tolerant

Lawn Care

Soil Preparation

Warm Season: Soil Preparation

Before planting, soil should be moistened to a depth of 15cm. Dig the area over thoroughly, to a depth of at least 15cm. The area must be leveled carefully as it is very difficult to correct levels after the grass has been laid.

Handling of Instant Lawn

Although the sods are well knitted together, careful handling is desirable. Do not leave sod in sun for long periods. For best results, Warm Season Grasses should be laid within 12 hours of delivery.

Watering Maintenance for Establishment Phase

Warm Season: Watering Maintenance for Establishment Phase

Water immediately after planting, sufficiently to moisten the soil to a depth of 11 – 20mm. In hot months every day, in the morning and afternoon for 2 weeks or until the grass is established.

In cool months, every day, mornings only for 2 weeks or until the grass are established.NB: Do not water later than 2pm so that the grass can dry off before night falls. Although adequate watering is very important, over watering and “puddling” must be avoided. Different types of soil must be taken into consideration

Fertilizer Maintenance

Since Warm Season grass grows most actively in Spring & Summer, this is when it needs to be fertilized most. It is beneficial to scarify warm season lawns first in spring when an application of 5:1:5 can be introduced onto the roots at 50g / m². Lawns do best when fertilized "little and often”. Grass growing in sandy soil needs to be fertilize more often than that growing in a clay soil, since the nutrients leach out far more readily in the first instance.

Conventional or controlled (slow) release fertilizer can be used. General fertilization recommendation as follows:

  • Spring: 5:1:5 applied @ 50g/m² (beginning of Aug & end Sept)
  • Summer: 5:1:5 or LAN controlled release 50g/m² (Mid Nov, end Dec & end Jan)
  • Autumn: 5:1:5 controlled release 50g/m² (beginning of March & end of April)
  • Winter: No fertilizer is necessary while the grass is dormant.

When to Establish

  • Instant Lawn: All year round
  • Spriggs: Preferably do not sprigg in winter months on the Highveld
  • Instant Lawn: All year round

When to Mow

As soon as the sod is firmly secured to the ground, mowing can begin by removing no more than ⅓ of the leaf length. For further information on mowing heights, please refer to the maintenance section.


Gulf Green®

Gulf Green® is a grass variant that doesn’t produce seed, making it perfect to plant around homes where the inhabitants are sensitive to pollen allergies. It’s sometimes called Golf Green because it looks like a putting green. Gulf Green® lawns are very soft and handle high traffic well. It grows very fast in the summer and you’ll need to mow it once a week. In winter growth is slower and the colour only dulls a bit.

Transplanting Gulf Green® instant lawn

Gulf Green® has a dense root structure and is very short internode length. It needs an intensive watering regiment, especially when it’s hot and dry, benefitting from water twice daily in these conditions.

Gulf Green® transplants well and can be planted all year round. It likes a bit of fertilizer and will green up quickly.

Gulf Green ®


Because it’s so reliant on regular irrigation, well points, boreholes, greywater systems and rain tanks can offer relief during droughts or municipal water restrictions.

Grass characteristics

  • Cynodon variety
  • Indigenous
  • Fine leaf texture
  • Bright green in colour
  • Good tolerance of drought
  • Slightly shade tolerant
  • Suits a wide range of soil types
  • Fast establishment rate
  • Excellent wearability
  • Cut regularly in summer
  • Goes dormant on the Highveld in winter
  • Requires a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight per day to thrive

LM grass

LM grass, also known as Durban grass, coat grass and sweet smother grass, is indigenous to South Africa, found predominantly on the KZN coast and Mozambique. It forms a dense, dark green lawn under ideal growing conditions. LM grass performs well in full sun, as well as in shady and semi-shade conditions. This grass has a creeping growth habit but it’s not as invasive as Kikuyu.

LM grass is will tolerate heat and can recover from drought and heat stress through its creeping growth habit.

Transplanting LM instant lawn

LM grass works well for home lawns, office parks, rough areas on golf courses, and shaded areas. When transplanting your grass, start by killing off and removing existing grass, making sure you get to the underground runners as well.

LM


Once the grass is 4 cm long, mow it at about 4 cm, generally once a week. Do not mow the lawn in frosty areas during winter to avoid exposing the upper leave growth to frost, causing cold damage.

LM grass does well with an irrigation system. If water is scarce the grass will go dormant and brown and die after an extended period of drought. So, despite it being relatively drought tolerant when it matures, it needs regular watering until the root system is established.

As a creeping grass LM can be used to cover bare patches.

Grass characteristics

  • Indigenous
  • Bright green in colour
  • Coarse leaf texture
  • Poor tolerance of drought and cold (high water usage)
  • Good tolerance of shade
  • Suits a wide range of soil types
  • Fast establishment rate
  • Fair wearability
  • Frost Sensitive
Purchase now - LM is a tropical grass and if not well established before winter it can die back completely. Availability: End of September
