Eureka Kikuyu Grass
All season instant lawn. An excellent economical all-rounder instant lawn.
A proven performer in most Australian climates, Eureka Kikuyu is a vigorous grower that stands up to a wide range of conditions.
Preferring a sunny aspect, Eureka Kikuyu is a dense, rapid growing lawn. Its vigorous growth habit allows it to repair very quickly if damaged and is able to establish a strong, deep root base to help it stand up to the hottest summer days.
Why Eureka Kikuyu is Such a Versatile Lawn
Eureka Kikuyu spreads by its vigorous growth from stolons (runners) and rhizomes (rootstalks) and is a coarse textured grass with a high growth rate. It grows both on top and underneath the ground popping up in new areas. The leaves are approximately 4 – 5mm wide and 25 – 40mm long and are yellow – green in colour.
Eureka Kikuyu is a great solution for planting out larger areas and erosion control, given the rapid aggressive spread of its runners in favourable conditions. It has good tolerance of waterlogged soil as it stores and moderates water usage well.
This grass grows faster than any other lawn grass and as a result is most suited to large open expanses, sports fields, golf greens etc, where mowing, invasion of gardens or excessive shade is not an issue.

Don’t settle for a brown dead lawn in summer. BBQ in style on lush green grass this year.
Remaining healthy and green throughout the harsher Australian climate is something Eureka Kikuyu grass does best. Deep roots keep it lush and green in the hottest of summer, makes it drought tolerant and enables survival through gardener neglect.
The cooler months don’t get the better of it either. It will withstand excess water and lower temperatures. Although the Eureka Kikuyu is known to maintain an even colour year round, it may brown in winter frost but will return to its lush green colour once the weather normalises.
