I don't think its Kikuyu as it never gets thick and tall (I've had KK before) - this stays low, so below the tops of and creeps between the Palmetto.…

what size conduit for a HDMI Cable? 20 or 25mm

Now I've learnt something new today ! These look a lot easier than 45's - I hope there's enough space in our joists to use these ;)

Just put in 50 mm and make your life easier - thats what we're doing. Also put in 45 deg connectors so its easy to pull cables.
