Despite its name, Queensland Blue Couch is not actually a type of couch, nor is it native to Queensland.
Known for reliability, a luscious fine texture and rapid recovery with just a light watering, it is a popular backyard turf.
Queensland Blue Couch has the enticing aesthetic of real couch varieties minus drawbacks such as overly aggressive growth. It is important to note that this grass is not herbicide resistant.
DISTINCT, REFINED COLOURATION
One of the biggest draws of this species is its rich blue-green colour which is combined with a comfortable leaf texture.
Queensland Blue Couch produces minimal thatch and is known to provide great lawn coverage with few patches.
EXCELLENT SUN TOLERANCE
This grass thrives in hot, sunny conditions. As the name suggests, the temperate to sub-tropical climates of cities like Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast are perfect for growing Queensland Blue Cooch. When deciding which turf is right for your home or business, you should keep in mind that this grass can suffer in overly shady areas.
If you’re after a type of turf that can be mowed very short without exposing unsightly runners, this low growing variety is right for you. Unlike real couch, Queensland Blue Couch does not thatch and can be cut so low it can even be used as a bowling green.
ADAPTS TO UNFRIENDLY CONDITIONS
Queensland Blue Couch is suitable for a wide range of soil types and will grow in sandy, acidic or low-fertility soil. With the addition of just a little fertiliser, it will blossom into an attractive lawn in most conditions.
