A blend of tough, carpet-forming Kikuyu and Annual Ryegrass, suited to warmer areas. Kikuyu is excellent for high traffic areas, coastal gardens and drought-prone districts, in frost-free regions of New Zealand. Fast-germinating Ryegrass helps to reduce weed competition while the Kikuyu seeds establish.
Excellent Coastal Lawn.
Ideal for Drought-Prone Areas.
*Ryegrass will appear in 7 days, in favourable conditions provided sowing directions are followed. Kikuyu seed may take 7-21 days to germinate. Germination may take longer than specified if the soil temperature is below 12°C and when the soil is not kept sufficiently moist.
Yates® Kikuyu Lawn Seed will always have the same seed blend, giving your lawn a consistent colour and texture time and time again.
Best sown between November- February to allow establishment of warm season Kikuyu. Ideal for Central and Upper North Island New Zealand climates.
Germination times are dependent upon temperature and soil moisture levels. Ryegrass will appear within 7 days, in favourable weather conditions provided sowing directions are followed.

Mowing new lawns: when grass is 5-8cm high, cut for the first time. Trim lightly, gradually lowering the mower blades each time you mow, until you reach an ideal cutting height of 2.5cm.
Mowing established lawns: Mow regularly but try not to remove more than a third of the growth at any one time.
Oversowing: can thicken and strengthen your existing lawn.
After 12 weeks, fertilise your new lawn with Yates® Quarterly Lawn Fertiliser for a healthy, green, lush lawn.
