Eureka Kikuyu was specially developed to have brand new characteristics for Kikuyu in all the traits where the old style common Kikuyu fell so short.
Eureka Kikuyu performs very well under low maintenance regimes where water and fertiliser is limited. It has an excellent dark green colour that holds into winter when traditional Kikuyu is yellowing oﬀ. Eureka Kikuyu has a denser sward than common Kikuyu, and the more dense a sward, the less chance of weed invasion. Eureka Kikuyu is ideal to use in those very high use situations where aggressive growth is required to cope with wear and tear.
Square Meters Needed
- Rhizomatous and stoloniferous
- Fine Leaf
- Reviews (14)
- Home Lawns
- Commercial landscapes
- Aggressive growth habit where wear and tear is an issue.
- Low input grass, doesn’t require a lot of fertiliser and water
- Drought tolerant
- Dark green colour
- Rapid recovery from wear
- Improved drought tolerance due to
- deep rooting nature.
- For optimum growth apply a high Nitrogen Lawn Food in September.
- Remove thatch each spring in mid to late November and follow this with an application of Lawn Food and a deep irrigation.
- Topdress with sand or loamy soil to achieve a level surface.
- In summer the use of wetting agents will keep the turf green and reduce the incidence of dry patches.
- In March apply Lawn Food to aid root and rhizome production prior to winter dormancy. This will hasten the spring green-up process.
If weeds appear it is best to remove them by hand if possible as chemicals can discolour or kill the grass. Specific products that are safe to use on your Eureka lawn are available at our Anco stores.
Regular mowing improves the quality and look of Kikuyu. It should not be left longer than 35mm, as thatching and scalping tendencies will increase. The ideal mowing height is 20-25mm. It can be mown shorter (15mm)
if mown regularly in spring and summer. Less frequent mowing is required in autumn and winter.
