Here at Rivers Edge Turf, we’re proud to be able to offer some of the best grass available to our customers and clients in the greater Sydney area. While we love all of our grasses, our Kikuyu grass is probably our most popular product. A kikuyu lawn is a great way to cover both large and small areas and will be a joy for many years if looked after properly.
The Illustrious History of Kikuyu Grass
First introduced to Australia from Africa in 1919, Kikuyu grass is famous for its salt tolerance, drought tolerance, and all around durability and longevity. Believe it or not, we got Kikuyu here in Australia even before the Americans knew about it!
A grass that grows in Africa is actually an ideal grass covering for Australia because in many ways our climates are quite similar. For a grass to thrive in Australia, it must be able to resist dry and harsh conditions, and also thrive well during the wetter seasons of the year.
