Kenda Kikuyu

$8.00 per m2

Kenda® Kikuyu handles all kinds of wear and tear – whether it’s from large dogs, active kids or regular backyard parties – and looks good while doing it.

Kenda® has a strong root system that grows vigorously. The result is a lawn that establishes quickly, is incredibly wear tolerant and has an excellent recovery rate. (minimum total order quantity of 30 m2)

Unlike common Kikuyu, Kenda® grass is bred to be sterile and produce minimal seed head meaning it is less likely to spread into surrounding garden beds or onto foot paths.

Kenda®’s sterile seed head also means it has low allergenic characteristics which reduces its likelihood of causing problems for allergy sufferers

Kenda® is an efficient water user and highly drought tolerant. It’s an ideal choice for areas with low rainfall or council water restrictions.

Maintenance

  • Cut to 2.5cm-5cm every 7-10 days in the warmer months, and every 3-6 weeks in cold months
  • Fertiliser is recommended twice a year: once in early April and once in September

Kenda® Kikuyu is highly drought tolerant once established – but, like all plants, needs water. Requirements will vary depending on environmental factors. Be aware of a drying climate and water your lawn accordingly.

Remember, infrequent deep watering of your lawn promotes a healthy lawn and a strong deep-rooted system. Watering time is best in the early morning.
