Eureka Kikuyu is a summer active lawn preferring a sunny aspect. It produces a medium thickness bright green leaf and has both underground and above ground runners that create a dense coverage. This kikuyu grass is an economical all-rounder lawn and looks best with short and frequent mowing. It is a vigorous grower needing at least 5-6 hours of sunlight per day. It is extremely hard wearing and recovers well from wear and tear. Ideal for those high traffic areas.
Eureka Kikuyu is the perfect lawn for planting out larger areas and erosion control given the rapid spread of it’s above and below ground runners. Its tolerance of water logged soils can also make it the best choice for transpiration areas.
Eureka Kikuyu is a great option for the home lawn, sporting surface, or commercial projects. Its vigorous growth habits and strong deep root system allow for a fast recovery and the ability to cope with drought conditions.
Eureka Kikuyu is a male sterile dwarf kikuyu. As it suggests, this grass can not produce pollen or flowers and hence, will not produce seed. It's suited to most soil types, its drought tolerant and an excellent self repairer.
Eureka Kikuyu needs to be watered frequently to help it connect and establish, however once established it is a drought tolerant lawn. During the warmer months watering two times per week is recommended. Watering for longer periods of time encourages the lawn to develop a deep root system which is essential to having a drought tolerant lawn. Watering frequencies should be adjusted depending on weather conditions and soil types.
Eureka Kikuyu looks best when mown every 7 days at a height of approx. 25mm during the warmer months. Regular mowing will prevent thatching and encourage a tight growth mat. Spring is the best time to de-thatch lawn. Mow very low at the beginning of spring to remove the thatch (scalp). Ensure you pick up the clippings to allow for fresh new growth.
To maintain a healthy lawn with dense coverage apply a Lawn Solutions Australia recommended fertiliser 2-3 times per year. Otherwise, maintenance requirements for Eureka Kikuyu are relatively low, including maintenance for pests and diseased soils can also make it the best choice for transpiration areas.

Sunnyside Instant Lawn - Greening Your World!
Thank you to you (Andrew) and your workers for contributing to a successful race track upgrade. Your work is of very high standard and much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you at the races, where you can see the track upgrade in use.
Thanks very much for the Sir Walter DNA lawn and thanks for your great service. The whole idea to use Sir Walter was to highlight the tinted windows and sandstone on our new home. I believe I have achieved this. Let alone the easy maintenance going forward.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn provided us with an grass option to complement our modern home. We chose Sir Walter Buffalo that has an intense green colour and its softness suits our children playing outside. It was a pleasure working with Sunnyside and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering any instant lawn option.
Just a little note of thanks for arranging the delivery and drop off of lawn. We are busy watering it regularly to keep it looking amazing. Your customer service has been awesome and something of which you should be proud.
A house just isn't a home without lawn, right from my first enquiry with Sunnyside I can not fault their service. I was going to lay the turf myself but at late notice I engaged them to lay it as well. I am so impressed with my Kikuyu lawn and the way it has been installed, it's perfectly finished our new house. The only thing smiling more than us is our dog!
Karrawatta Viticulture and Wines would like to thank Sheridan and the team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn for expanding the lawn area around our office. The quality of service and the product delivery has been second to none. Thanks again Sunnyside!
We would like to thank you for the Sir Walter Buffalo lawn layed during our recent court upgrade. We can now safely accommodate the growing numbers of participants using the facility with increased opportunities to train and play netball day and night all year round.
I am so happy with my Sir Walter Buffalo, it is green, lush and beautiful and has added so much value to my house. I was more than satisfied with the customer service provided by Sheridan & Andrew. I was very impressed with the follow up phone call I received and felt Sunnyside Instant Lawn not only provided me with great turf but they provided me with a very personal, wonderful service.
The quality and condition of the Sir Walter DNA you delivered to Blair Athol was exceptional, best turf I have ever laid. Thank you so much.
My client came home at lunchtime yesterday to check it out. She was so happy and excited, she couldn’t stop crying. It was the first time in her 45 year life that she had ever had lawn in her own home. Hard to imagine that, life without a lawn.
We couldn’t be more happy with the service and the end result. The Turf Guy, (Jamie) was very accommodating in meeting the needs of our centre and scheduled a time to do the work on a Saturday, ensuring the safety of the children and the families. Lots of families have commented on how amazing the lawn looks…
We are very happy with our RTF Tall Fescue Lawn supplied and laid by Sunnyside Instant Lawn. The advice from Andrew & Sheridan was very professional and we would certainly recommend them.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn recently supplied and line planted approximately 15,000 square metres of turf at the Bordertown Racing Club. During this project, I found Andrew and his team to be very proficient. All work was carried out on time, offering good advice regarding the proper care required to get the grass up and going, they also followed up the progress of the turf after it was planted.
I love my new lawns! I was so impressed with the team's obvious knowledge and thorough manner. They advised the most suited turf type for this area's soil and climate. Their prices were very competitive and they had my windswept wasteland looking verdant and established in the space of a day! The team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn were, at all times, helpful, timely and professional.
Thanks Sunnyside Instant Lawn, our lawn has come up awesome. Great product, great service, great price, what more could you ask for.
Thank you for the great RTF Fescue lawn we bought last week. It has made a huge difference to our house already.
