It’s important to keep the seed moist for the first few weeks after seeding to ensure proper germination and establishment. It may need watering a few times per day in hotter climates or a nice long soak before and after work. Once grass is established, watering can be scaled back. Though kikuyu can handle tough draft conditions, the optimal watering schedule to maintain a lush green appearance is:


Spring  & Autumn –  once a week for 20 minutes

Winter – 3 times per week for 15 minutes

Summer 30⁰C + 3 times a week for 15 minutes
