Eureka Kikuyu - Great low cost option
Perfect for: High traffic areas including
public access parks & gardens, playgrounds, caravan parks, nature
strips and recreation reserves. A great low budget home lawn option.
Available: All year round.
Characteristics: Hard wearing, drought tolerant, requires
minimal fertilising, self repairing, aggressive growing, competitive
against unwanted weeds.
Details: Eureka Kikuyu grass is like the
Collingwood Football Club - you either love it or hate it. It is most
widely used in northern Victoria by councils, schools, and caravan park
owners because its aggressive nature guarantees it will withstand the
wear and tear of heavy foot and vehicle traffic in public access areas.
For home lawn situations, you will need to either apply a
chemical, build a substantial garden edge or edge your lawn on a regular
basis if you wish to control Eureka Kikuyu's invasive lateral growth
into adjoining garden beds.
Eureka Kikuyu will lose some of its colour during the cooler
months while it is dormant. Eureka Kikuyu needs to be grown in full sun.
