INDIGENOUS

Our Kweek (Cynodon Dactylon), also named Bermuda Grass, also comes as quite a thick mat, but if you choose, it can be mowed and manicured to replicate the most flat bowling green! It beats all other lawns when it comes to withstanding foot traffic and can therefore also be used for sports fields.

KIKUYU

 sun

Requires a lot of water

thin – thick mat *

  can be foot-traffic resilient or sensitive*

    frost sensitive

EXOTIC

*(depending on maintenance practise)

A densely matted grass that can grow very quickly when given enough fertilizer and water. Recommended for those who are used to good maintenance practices.

 

Advantages of Indigenous over Exotic Lawn:

  • Can survive with less watering and mowing (thus less and cheaper maintenance and performs better in drought)
  • Less allergen-producing than exotic (some people and pets are allergic to Kikuyu)
  • Naturally greener
  • Not as susceptible to illnesses

Combination vs Pure Lawn:

  • Buffalo is more appealing to the eye
  • Buffalo/Kweek combinations takes more foot traffic. The more Kweek in the combination, the more foot traffic resistant.
