If you are looking for a good hardy lawn that doesn’t require much water (once established) then this is it.
Mallee Kikuyu grass is a dwarf male sterile variety MSK that does not spread by seed, which is a different type of Kikuyu than the "common Kikuyu".
Kikuyu grass is considered as the most drought resistant lawn on the market and is light to mid green in colour. It is a medium textured lawn with a strong growth structure which thrives in full sunlight and has superior drought tolerance. It is extremely hard wearing, soft to touch and fantastic for children, dogs and high traffic areas. It is well suited to Australia’s climate and is widely used in home lawns, nature strips, ovals, parks and schools. Kikuyu has a creeping/runner growth and a deep root system and has a sterile seed, it is exceptionally fast growing and self repairing. It recovers rapidly from any wear and damage.
Of the warm season grasses, Mallee Kikuyu has the best winter colour.
Kikuyu grass requires strict control to keep it out of garden beds but uses the least amount of water to continue looking great.
