Kikuyu Grass is Easy to Grow
In order to get maximum enjoyment from Kikuyu Grass, we recommend that you water early morning or evening instead of midday when temperatures are at their highest point. This will help avoid stress on the plant as well as prevent disease since watering too often can cause fungus growth if left unattended for weeks at a time! We also suggest fertilizing every two months.
