Eureka Kikuyu Grass
Eureka Kikuyu grass has a broad course leaf with rapid growth. Such a lively turf thrives in the sunlight, holding its colour brilliantly in most conditions. Eureka Kikuyu doesn’t survive well in shaded or excessively damp areas. It is non-allergenic and great for achieving a bright garden.
Due to its rapid growth, Eureka Kikuyu will need to be mowed every 5-7 days during summer. With regular fertilising and watering, Eureka Kikuyu will remain its bright, cheerful self.
Eureka Kikuyu is a vibrant green with medium-coarse leaves. Approximately 4-5mm wide and 25-40mm long, the leaves will maintain a tight growing mat as long as they are regularly mowed. Eureka Kikuyu will hold its appearance throughout the majority of the year. Its growth and colour will remain vigorous and vibrant through autumn and into early winter. At the touch of frost, Eureka Kikuyu will brown off but it will recover quickly as spring returns. This ability for rapid growth means that Eureka Kikuyu also has a superior disease resistance, and it’s ready to bounce right back if something does happen.
Although rapid growth means that Eureka Kikuyu is superb for high amounts of foot traffic, it means that it is high maintenance. Eureka Kikuyu loves water and sunlight but needs mowing every 5-7 days in summer. Eureka Kikuyu also doesn’t tolerate shade well. By fertilising regularly, you can be sure that Eureka Kikuyu will thrive in most conditions.
Eureka Kikuyu Grass is a splendid choice for both home lawns and larger areas such as racecourses, parks, golf tees and fairways. Eureka Kikuyu is great for erosion control.
