Keep out those pesky weeds. Kenda® turf grows dense and vigorously enough to make it hard for weeds to invade. Kenda® Kikuyu was bred to be predominantly cytoplasmic male sterile, meaning it is less likely to produce functional anthers, pollen, or male gametes. The fact that it is far less likely to produce seed means that birds are less likely to attack your Kenda® turf and spread the seed to your gardens. Common Kikuyu is often attacked by Galahs and other birds that chew the seed from the base, and can leave the lawn in a real mess. Play it safe with Kenda® Kikuyu turf.
