Still trying to decide on what turf variety to lay at our new house. Has anyone had any experience with the new Kenda Kikuyu?
I am leaning towards Kikuyu as we have had kikuyu at every house we have owned so far and always loved it. Tough, easy to keep looking good and we don't mind the maintenance. Mowing and controlling it doesn't bother us.
My question is if the new Kenda Kikuyu is significantly better than the old kikuyu? The standard stuff is $4.50 m2 and the kenda is $7.70 m2. Speaking with the supplier it is better in every regard apparently, but specifically how it is better was all a bit vague. The only real positive I can tell is it is male sterile. Just interested to see if anyone in the know has any experience with it?

I have dealt with both Kenda and Village Green (another sterile kik) and the big difference is the leaf density. Both have more root system that produces more leaves and repairs quicker than standard kik. So in real life its a nice thick turf which gets a finer leaf after a fair bit of mowing. As far as being sterile i can't comment because all kik are sterile in vic (where i am) due to the climate.

You always fit doors to the frame anyway so a standard 2040x820 will be fine. Modern frames allow for weather strips, often older frames you need to reduce the door height…
