Nullabor Couch grass in Australia

A good grass for full sun areas

Nullarbor Couch Grass is classed as a warm season grass, like most grasses grown in Australia. It has been researched, evaluated and trialled for the past 20 years to deliver long-lasting performance in full sun areas. This variety requires at least 5-6 hours of sunlight per day so is ideal for full sun areas, whereas if you are looking for a more shade tolerant variety, you may be better considering Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Grass. For superior shade tolerance in a couch grass, check out TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda, which is also the only grass in Australia to be awarded the Smart Approved WaterMark for drought tolerance.

  • Ideal for full sun
  • Needs 5-6 hours sunlight/day

Hard wearing with high traffic tolerance

One of the best features of Nullarbor Couch is its ability to tolerate high foot traffic from people and animals, hence its popularity across both residential and sports landscaping projects such as football and cricket grounds.

  • High traffic tolerance
  • Hard wearing
  • Rapid recovery from wear and stress

Nullarbor Couch has higher maintenance requirements than some other grass types. For example, during the summer it is best to mow Nullarbor Couch every 5-7 days to ensure it doesn’t invade where it is not wanted.

During winter, Nullarbor Couch has low dormancy – this is when the grass is in a dormant state and the plant focuses resources on the roots. Consequently, it has an early start to growth after winter, and also has rapid recovery from wear and other stresses.

It’s best to apply a Lawn Solutions Australia recommended fertiliser 2-3 times per year to maintain a dense vigorous turf sward.  Nullarbor Couch has good tolerance to broadleaf herbicides for weed control.

  • Low dormancy
  • Tolerant of low mowing
  • Strong horizontal leaf growth habit
