Nullarbor Couch lawn

Uses:

Suitable for residential and commercial lawns.

High wearing areas such as golf courses, tennis courts and even bowling greens where close mowing is required.

Parks, gardens, sports ovals, roadsides, urban in-fill areas and even soil stabilisation areas.

Maintenance:

Couch grass varieties need fertilising to keep the lawn at optimum health. Summer fertilisation should alternate between a chemical and organic fertiliser applied every 6 weeks. In winter a single application of fertiliser will be adequate to maintain your lawns health.

Wintergreen will require frequent watering after laying and while establishing, but once well established it is drought tolerant. Watering at medium levels will maintain a healthy lawn.
