Kikuyu Turf
If you have a backyard that is in full sun and gets plenty of wear and tear, KIkuyu turf grass could be a good option for you. Kikuyu is a vigorous grower in spring and summer so be sure to keep the edges trimmed or it will invade garden beds in no time at all. With the growing pattern this enables it to recover quickly from wear whilst being quite drought resistance, it's hardy but needs full sun.  In shade it will thin out and die. With Kikuyu, all lawns a little different but don't be afraid to leave the thatch a little higher giving it a great spongy feel to walk on. The great thing with Kikuyu, being a vigorous grower it will strangle weeds. Talk to Associated Turf for more advice and the best types of turf for your situation.
