Kikuyu Grass

Kikuyu Lawn is a vigorous growing warm season lawn. It can handle a high amount of wear and recovers quickly from damage, making it suitable for highly used areas.

Kikuyu Lawn grows best in full sun, however will tolerate a small amount of shade.

It is easy to grow and is quick establishing. Kikuyu has a good winter colour, unless you are in a heavily frost effected area.

Kikuyu Lawn will go dormant during winter, meaning it will not actively grow although it will require sufficient regular mowing throughout the warmer months.

Kikuyu lawn is an affordable grass which makes it an ideal lawn for larger open areas such as Parks, Golf Course Fairways and Fields.

If maintained Kikuyu will make pleasant lawn.

Lm Berea

Lm Berea has a reputation for the highest shade tolerance out of all the species. LM is also the most popular choice for gardens in South Africa because of its prominent darker green colour which does not easily turn yellow in continuous wet and rainy conditions when there is not much sun for photosynthesis.

It grows best in shady and semi-shade conditions and performs well in full sun as well. LM grass is commonly known as “shade grass”. When planted in full sun, it might need a little more water on extremely hot days. 

LM grass has a creeping growth habit that is much less invasive than Kikuyu. It will not invade your flower beds and paving aggressively as Kikuyu does and needs to be trimmed less often in such places. It also does not grow very tall when not cut often but rather forms a thick carpet. LM grass is relatively heat tolerant and can recover from drought and heat stress in a short time.


Topsoil is the top layer of the earth’s surface. Topsoil is high in organic matter, which makes it very easy to till and fertilize ground for growing plants. Topsoil was designed to bring all the ingredients for the recipe of plant life together. If you’re planning on growing lawn or vegetables or just to level some land, then topsoil is the product that you should use. 

You can also add topsoil to existing lawn and the best way to add topsoil to your lawn without damaging your grass is to top-dress the lawn with topsoil that matches the lawn’s native topsoil. Adding thick layers of soil without allowing grass time to adjust, however, kills the grass, even if it is not buried completely by the soil. Adding a thin layer of topsoil once every several months to the lawn is the best technique.


One of the easiest ways to keep your lawn healthy and green is to compost it 2-3 times a year. This is preferable for many people because it’s safe and organic, and you’re not constantly adding chemical-based fertilizers to your yard or garden. 

Compost makes a great fertilizer, because in addition to having important nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, it often has trace elements you don’t ordinarily find in commercial fertilizers. Compost benefits your gardens, lawns by increasing the water-holding capacity of your soils. This increases the drought resistance of your soils. Whether your soils are compacted clay, or sandy deserts, when you add compost, your soil structure will improve. If you add compost to clay soils, they will loosen and have better aeration and drainage. This is a critical factor in creating beautiful lawns in new subdivisions. If you add compost to sandy soils, they will tighten and hold more water.
