We are happy to share our many years of “aftercare” experience on how to take care of your newly planted Kikuyu, LM or other grass variants as well as what to do with the compost and lawn dressing. Feel free to contact us should you need more information or assistance.

GRASS VARIANTS

Kikuyu Grass

Kikuyu GrassWatering – Water your Kikuyu grass every day for two consecutive weeks, maintaining good moisture. Water for 25min if watering with a tool, that provides a concentrated water blanket (e.g. Hose with sprinkler head). Water for 45min if you are watering with a device that oscillates. It is advisable that you water early morning. Watering in the evening will optimise conditions for fungicide/disease.

However, if there is extremely hot weather which causes your grass to dry up, late afternoon watering is required. From the 3rd week default to a regular watering regime, which is every 2nd to 3rd day depending on weather conditions. Please do not be dependent on only rain to water your grass. Rain is a bonus, and you need not water when it rains.

Re-establishment – Re-establishment takes four weeks, within this phase you are to leave the grass as undisrupted as possible. This means to manage traffic and no mowing. Within the 4th week of the grass being planted, try to pick up several random sods/grass rolls. By this time, you should feel that it is resisting being picked up. Should this be the case, you now know that the grass has rooted/re-established and you can give it the first mow.
