Buffalo, Kikuyu and Berea Instant/Roll On Lawn – Supply and Installation.

We have tried and tested a couple of ways throughout the years, to see which method works the best, and we have had many clients that were satisfied with the end product once we have installed the instant lawns. The “old section” gets prepared to the correct levels and condition that is required to install lawns. Compost and fertilizer are then used to nourish the soil to make it ready to receive the new lawn. We also found that rolling the lawn with a roller afterwards, damages the lawns and 60% of the time it does not survive such harsh treatment just after planting. We use a stamping method instead, which leaves the lawn fairly level. Once we are done, the client gets given a leaflet on how to take care of the lawn.

Choosing The Proper Lawn For Your Garden

One has to bare in mind that kikuyu and berea are a softer grass than buffalo.

Buffalo: can handle a lot of traffic e.g kids running and playing, dogs can run on it, without causing huge damage as with kikuyu and Berea. Does not need a lot of water and in general can handle shade and shady areas better than kikuyu and Berea. Buffalo thrives in sandy soil, obviously provided it gets enough feeding and fertiliser. Does not need that much mowing.

Kikuyu: Here again we have a lush, softer lawn, that don’t really like that much traffic. Needs a lot of water, struggle in shady areas sometimes, but there have been cases that it works well in shady areas. This lawn in itself are very unpredictable regarding growth and general maintenance. Once you have control of your soil and know which fertilizers and compost works best for the specific area, you can sit back and boast with a well growing and healthy lawn.

Berea: Berea is a very soft bladed lawn grass that exhibits an incredibly high tolerance to shade, it is can be grown in both sun and shade. It has a similar root structure to buffalo grass, depending on how long you like the lawn to grow, it can look good on the “tall and long” side, but also short. Bare in mind that this lawn will not look good if you cut very low and might cause brown spots made by the mower.

Work out the square area of your lawn with the help of this diagram or to work out the sqaure meter of a circle: The area of a circle can be found by multiplying pi ( π = 3.14) by the square of the radius. If a circle has a radius of 4, its area is 3.14 x 4 x 4=50.24. If you know the diameter, the radius is 1/2 as large.
