Kenda Kikuyu is ideal if you are a household with large dogs and active kids. It has a very good winter colour and a lovely soft, dense texture. This colour means you can have a dark green lawn all year round.

Unlike common kikuyu, it is less likely to produce viable seed heads, so this makes it a better choice for your home garden. It’s vigorous growth however, which makes its recovery so good in active areas, has a downside in that it readily grows into garden beds. This makes Kenda Kikuyu most suitable to an open area bordered by hard surfaces.

It’s winter growth means it’s great for sporting fields where winter activity is important as winter is when sporting lawns are more prone to damage.

Like other varieties of kikuyu and couch, Kenda needs full sun so it is not a variety to be used if you have shade.
