Kikuyu Eureka Instant Turf

A proven performer in most Australian climates, Eureka, Australia’s number 1 choice of Kikuyu grass, is a vigorous grower that stands up to a wide range of conditions.


  • It prefers a sunny aspect and will thrive with at least 5 to 6 hours of sun per day. However, it can cope with a few hours in the shade.
  • Eureka provides a good dense coverage that makes for a rapid recovery from damage.
  • It grows twice as fast as normal kikuyu grass.
  • It holds its colour well into winter, only turning brown when exposed to frost. Colour returns as weather improves.
  • Has a deep root base to help it stand up to the hottest summer days.
  • Ideal for large areas.


  • High growth rate which means high mowing requirement. Usually every 7 days in warmer weather.
  • Eureka Kikuyu grass enjoys a long growing season and with regular mowing will hold a good tight growth mat.
  • Requires more watering and fertilising that other lawn types. In warmer weather, watering 1-2 times per week is recommended to develop a good root system. Fertilising 2-3 times a year is ideal.
