Characteristics of Kenda Kikuyu
Kenda is a form of Kikuya Turf that is growing in popularity due to it's resilience during drought conditions and durability to wear and tear. Another great feature of Kenda is it's vibrant colour all year long. Kenda will stay green and lush, when other varieties of warm season turf tend to discolour during the winter months without alot of water, such as Buffalo and the original Kikuyu.
With Kenda's tolerance to constant impact and drought resistance it is often the variety of turf chosen for commercial requirements such as sports fields, golf courses and parks. The reason that kend is less susceptible to wear and tear than other varieties of turf can be credited to its higher number of rhizones and it's stolens being more vigorous.
In conjunction to Kenda being a great choice for commercial requirements it is also a great addition to a residential front and backyard. Due to it's ability to flourish during drought conditions and handle regular impact, its the perfect choice for growing families with pets.
