Backed by Lawn Solutions Australia

Nullarbor Couch is your affordable choice to produce a manicured lawn that stands out. It will give a long-lasting performance in full sun areas and is known for its drought resistance.

This couch lawn is widely used as it makes a versatile and environmentally friendly surface for your yard, playing field or parkland area. For the best performance from your lawn, you should frequently mow couch grass; every 5-7 days in summer. It is best mown at about a 15-25 mm height.

Known as bermuda grass in the US, couch grass varieties produce a very dense turf that is an attractive luscious green colour. Nullarbor Couch turf has been researched, evaluated and trialled for the past 20 years.

Warm season grasses like Nullarbor Couch grow best in full sun and require at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.

Apply a recommended fertiliser 2-3 times per year to maintain a dense vigorous turf sward. Beyond regular mowing and seasonal fertilising, Nullarbor Couch maintenance requirements (pests, diseases, etc.) are relatively low.

Nullarbor Couch grass is a good choice for work, rest and play.

When to fertilise your lawn

It’s important to establish a regular lawn care program to keep your couch grass green and lush. Fertilising is one of the best ways to boost and maintain its strength and growth. The easiest way to remember when your Nullarbor Couch lawn needs the most input from you is to put in place an annual plan. An annual plan would see you:

Fertilise four times a year; usually seasonally to keep the fine leaf blade grass strong and healthy all year. Follow the fertiliser’s instructions because Nullarbor couch lawns will thrive with the right amount of nitrogen boosting support to produce a soft, dark green grass.

Spring – Your lawn will be recovering after its winter hibernation. To give it a boost, apply a balanced fertiliser that is high in nitrogen during early spring.

Summer – this is the time of bountiful growth. Along with fertiliser, your sunshine loving couch grass will still need watering and regular mowing.

Autumn – This is the time to prepare for the colder months, with up to two fertiliser applications. The best months are March and anytime in April/May.

Winter – Having fertilised your couch lawn in Autumn, your hibernating lawn will be fine for the winter months. However, don’t miss its spring fertilisation in the warmer weather.

Comparing buffalo and couch grass

In comparison to a buffalo grass, such as DNA Certified Sir Walter, couch is the best turf grass species for:

  • Full sun areas; although you may have to water couch grass more often as it can be thirsty which means a higher water bill.

  • Couch grass is cheaper than drought-tolerant DNA Certified Sir Walter, making it an affordable option for those after a new lawn on a tighter budget.

  • In comparison to buffalo, couch grass has a good wear tolerance. It’s also better suited to mowing low in comparison to buffalo turf (which prefers to be kept a little longer) and also has higher wear tolerance.
