Yates Kikuyu Lawn Seed is a unique blend of hardy kikuyu grass and annual ryegrass. The kikuyu is a tough spreading variety, suited to warmer areas. Fast-germinating ryegrass minimises soil erosion and reduces weed competition while the slower kikuyu seedlings get established. 

A vigorous warm climate grass, kikuyu is excellent for high traffic areas, sandy coastal gardens and drought-prone districts, in frost-free regions of New Zealand. 


  • Drought and heat tolerant
  • Hard wearing and vigorous
  • Excellent coastal lawn
  • Contains fungicide and bird repellent
