Eureka Kikuyu Grass is 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.
A strong and enduring lawn
Eureka grows twice as fast as normal Kikuyu for rapid recovery.
Because of its rapid growth properties Kikuyu is a high maintenance lawn requiring more mowing, watering and fertilising than other lawn types but will stay healthy and green in harsher conditions.
A Versatile Lawn
Good for home lawns, racecourses, parks and reserves, golf tees and fairways.
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. Its tolerance of water logged soils can also make it the best choice for transpiration areas.
This grass grows faster than any other lawn grass and as a result is most suited to large open expanses, sports fields etc., where mowing, invasion of gardens or shade is not an issue. It will only thrive in the sun; however, can cope with a few hours in the shade.
Kikuyu was founded in East Africa and is favoured for its quick establishment and growth rate.
Eureka Kikuyu spreads by its vigorous growth from stolons and rhizomes 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.

A Quick Repairing Grass
Eureka has twice the rapid growing ABILITY of other Kikuyu’s.
Preferring a sunny aspect, Eureka Kikuyu is a dense, rapid growing grass. 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.
Eureka is a premium Kikuyu lawn that has a bigger list of positive attributes than ordinary male sterile or dwarf Kikuyu’s. As it has a better rhizomous base it is fast repairing, promotes even growth and stays green longer than other Kikuyu varieties.
Eureka Kikuyu enjoys a long growing season and with regular mowing will hold a good tight growth mat. It holds its colour well into winter. It will brown off when frost affected but bounces back with full vigour in spring.
