    Re: Eradicating kikuyu in couch

    MowerRob, you are dead right about the cost!

    Only 6 months ago or so, Syngenta re-packaged the Monument from the previously granular package to the 1 litre Liquid package.

    Fair indication of curl grub damage to turf grasses. I am seeing a lot of it (dead patches in lawns) in Sydney lawns especially after the run of 40 degrees plus days 2 weeks ago!

    Re: Type of grasses for Victoria

    Stripes, I'm with you on that!

    Zoysia, in fact, has a broad leaf like Buffalo, and therefore would not get as nice a finish with a barrel/cylinder mower.

    Re: Spraying Couch grass and other weeds.

    There is a selective herbicide called Fusilade that targets couch & kikuyu in garden plant situations without being harmful to garden plants. However, it's dear as poison.
