Dear Mathew,

Yates Bindii & Clover Weeder is registered for use on kikuyu lawns. Before applying the product be sure to measure the area of lawn correctly. When diluting the product with water into your sprayer, check to see you are using the right amount of product and cover the number of square metres suggested on the label. It is imporant not to use more than the recommended rate and to cover the correct number of square metres of lawn. Damage can occur if these directions are not followed. Do not apply if the soil is dry and the conditions are very hot and the lawn is suffering from any sort of stress. I am sure if you follow all directions on the label with regard to dilution and number of metres covered, you will be able to eliminate the bindii and clover without any damage to your kikuyu lawn.
