Kenda Kikuyu - Product Review
Author: Stefan Palm Date Posted: 27 November 2019
Looking for a incredibly drought tolerant and hard wearing lawn? Kenda Kikuyu has even more vigor than regular kikuyu making it the ultimate in durability.
- Excellent year round colour. Deep dark green colour during winter
- Dense leaf which is soft under foot
- Superior wear tolerance
- Fast recovery rate from high traffic areas
- Low allergenic characteristics
Kenda instant turf is a variety of kikuyu bred to have higher level of vigor over standard and sterile kikuyu. This is due to its extra large prostrate runners and the fact that it has 4 times as many underground runners as regular kikuyu making it very fast establishing and fast to repair from damage. Its fast horizontal and underground growth surprisingly does not lead to more mowing than other kikuyu varieties
Kenda is excellent for high traffic home lawns, sporting facilities, schools, public amenity spaces or any area (except shade) that requires a turf to perform under the stress of extreme wear. It's a new player in the Kikuyu market but customer feedback to date confirms that it lives up to its reputation. Where previously standard or sterile kikuyu was the most hard wearing lawn, there were still circumstances where it was not hard wearing enough which is where Kenda comes into its own. As with any plant, it's not indestructible but it’s as close as you're going to get.
