Kenda Kikuyu Grass

Choosing the right grass for your home can be a daunting task. Here at Rivers Edge Turf, we want to make the decision easier for you by giving you all the information you need to make the right choice. If you are interested in Kenda Kikuyu Grass then here is some further information to help you decide whether this what you are looking for.

Kenda Kikuyu Grass

Kenda Kikuyu grass is different from your common kikuyu grass and other breeds of Kikuyu. It was bred to be predominantly cytoplasmic male sterile, which means it is less likely to produce functional anthers, pollen or male gametes. Basically, it is less likely to produce seed so birds are less likely to attack and spread the seed to other parts of your garden where you do not want it. Kenda Kikuyu grass is a safe option!

Another great thing about the kenda kikuyu grass is that is is a greatly improved, fast establishing form of Kikuyu turf and has a great drought and wear tolerance. This type of grass is a low-cost option and has a great winter colour.

Kenda Kikuyu Grass will grow more horizontally than vertically which means it will be at a smaller height than other Kikuyu turf when left un-mown. This turf has a denser appearance making it more uniform and beautiful.

Kenda Kikuyu Turf is known to be more field resistant to the Kikuyu yellow disease. This is most likely due to its more vigorous growth.

This turf has extra large prostrate runners and has four times as many rhizomes as common Kikuyu and has a deep underground growth. This means it has much quicker recovery from wear, will survive for longer in droughts, provides better turf rolls as it holds together better and has a quicker establishment.

These are just a few of the characteristics of Kenda Turf. You may wish to find out more here.
