Wintergreen Couch grass has been a favourite among Australian households and sporting clubs for over twenty years – and for a good reason.
It withstands heavy wear and tear better than most turf varieties while still maintaining luscious and soft light-mid green leaves all year.
With a medium growth rate and moderate fertilising requirements, wintergreen couch is best for homes or businesses looking to make a long-term investment in their property with only minimal upkeep.
WITHSTANDS WEAR & TEAR
Many sporting clubs (golf, football, cricket, bowls) prefer to use wintergreen couch because it is extremely tough and repairs quickly. This also makes it ideal for high-traffic areas and lawns that kids and animals are always walking and playing on.
Wintergreen couch maintains its lively green colour throughout the year, only fading a little in the winter months. It fares better in winter than other green couch varieties.
RESISTS WEED INVASION
The extreme density of this grass type (it has both stolen/creeper growth and a deep root system)
stops weeds from breaking through its surface.
SUPER DROUGHT RESISTANT
Because wintergreen couch has a very dense, deep root system it fares very well in areas that receive little to no rainfall. This makes it an ideal species to lay on properties that do not have irrigation systems in place or have limited water supplies.
SALT & HERBICIDE TOLERANT
Wintergreen couch has a good salt tolerance, making it great for coastal areas. Many herbicides are registered for couch varieties, and this particular type copes very well when sprayed.
