Kikuyu grass has been a popular choice in South Africa for many years. Not only can it be grown almost anywhere in the country, but it is hardy, affordable and fast-growing. There are a number of other benefits to of this grass and it remains a top choice for backyards, sporting fields and commercial lawns.
Benefits of Kikuyu Grass
The biggest benefit of Kikuyu grass for South Africans is that it is extremely hard wearing. It can handle the toughest of conditions and repairs quickly. Other benefits include:
- Low maintenance – wet and forget.
- Fast growing – just keep your eye on the runners to ensure it doesn’t take over in areas you don’t want it to.
- Grows in almost any soil – the grass thrives in almost any soil, even average soil where other grass varieties have failed.
- Attractive and feels nice – ideal for kids as it is soft underfoot and grows into a beautiful bright green colour.
While it is known as a warm-season grass, it will grow almost anywhere, even in colder climates. It is fairly drought resistant although some watering may be required. This is to keep it looking its best during the hot summer months.
Kikuyu grows fast which means your lawn will require a weekly mow in the summer and a monthly mow in the winter. It’s unlikely you’ll need to fertilise your Kikuyu, but a slow release fertiliser will give it a kick start if it needs it.
