Nullarbor Couch Grass Grass Type

Nullarbor Couch Grass

Nullarbor Couch is Australia’s best performing Couch grass, and the only one backed by a national 10 Year Warranty. The perfect choice for work, rest and play, it produces a manicured lawn with an attractive luscious green colour and fine leaf blades.

A great grass for full sun areas

Nullarbor Couch Grass has been researched, evaluated and trialled for the past 20 years to deliver long-lasting performance in full sun areas. Requiring at least 5-6 hours of sunlight per day, it is also best to apply a Lawn Solutions Australia recommended fertiliser 2-3 times per year to maintain a dense vigorous turf sward. Otherwise, Nullarbor Couch maintenance requirements are relatively low and it has good tolerance to broadleaf herbicides for weed control.

Ideal for home lawns, sports or commercial projects

Producing a very dense turf, Nullarbor Couch Grass is widely used for sports and commercial landscaping projects as well as home gardens, as it is excellent for hard wearing areas yet soft to walk on and environmentally friendly. It is best mown every 5-7 days in summer. Its low dormancy means it has an early start to growth after winter, and it has rapid recovery from wear and other stresses.
