Nullarbor Couch

Nullarbor Couch

There are many types of couches on the market today and here at Daleys Turf we have grown quite a few of them over the years. Through our experience we have determined that Nullarbor Couch is the perfect choice for our local South East Queensland location and climate, and for lawns for work, rest and play.

The benefits of choosing Nullarbor Couch as your new lawn:

Nullarbor Couch

  • Hard wearing and suitable for homes, sports and playing fields, schools and commercial applications
  • Provides a dense cover
  • Gives long lasting results in full sun
  • Backed by 20 years of research, evaluation and trials
  • Maintains a fine leaf blade and a dark green colour
  • Has a strong, horizontal growth habit, ensuring a tolerance to low mowing
  • Rapidly recovers from stresses such as flooding, disease and pests
  • Good tolerance to broadleaf herbicides used for weed control
  • Low dormancy ensuring an early start to the growth phase after Winter
  • Excellent tolerance to wear and tear and high traffic

Nullarbor Couch is easy to maintain requiring:

  • 6-7 hours of sunlight per day
  • Fertilising 2-3 times per year to retain a dense turf sward
  • Frequent mowing equating to every 5-7 days during Summer months at a height of 15-25mm
