Kikuyu grass offers many benefits and is especially popular in South Africa due to the fact that it flourishes in hot temperatures. Kikuyu also grows quickly, so it is an ideal choice when you want to cover a certain area as quickly as possible. Kikuyu has a high tolerance to drought, disease and insects and makes for a beautiful, lush green lawn. Kikuyu lawn is ideal for turf areas, hillsides and banks, sports fields, golf courses and stadiums. It also has a rapid recovery rate, making it ideal for areas that need to grow quick cover or areas that were damaged.
