Eureka-Kikuyu-md-trans

Eureka Premium Kikuyu is perfect for those larger projects. Kikuyu premium has quick self-repairing qualities. Eureka is a premium lawn that has a bigger list of attributes than ordinary male sterile or dwarf Kikuyu’s. As it has a better rhizomous base, it is fast repairing and stays green longer than other Kikuyu varieties. Best suited for large areas, such as sports fields or commercial projects. It can also be used in residential situations. Note: As Kikuyu was brought to Australia as a fast growing cattle food, ALL Kikuyu lawn varieties are fast spreading and invasive by nature.

Nullarbor Couch Grass logo md trans

Nullarbor Couch is a fine leafed Couch and is a warm season grass. It is tough and durable and looks best when mown short.  Nullarbor couch is not suited to heavy shade, preferring 6-7 hours of sun per day.  If grown in full sun, couch is extremely hard wearing and will tolerate traffic. Couch has a high wear tolerance and an excellent ability to recuperate quickly. However, Couch requires higher maintenance to keep your lawn looking its best, with more regular mowing and fertilizing.

Recommended for both residential and commercial applications.

RTF-fescue-logo-md-trans

RTF Tall Fescue is a lush and shade tolerant lawn. Requires more water than other drought tolerant varieties, however RTF is the only true rhizomous Tall Fescue that can self repair. It likes heavier soil and best suited to cooler climate areas, such as the South East and Adelaide Hills. Lush and luxurious looking.

For every 15 times a Kikuyu lawn requires mowing:

  • Couch grass will need to be mowed 11 times in the same period
  • Buffalo grass will need to be mowed 7.25 times in the same period
