Grass is one of those things that can really complete a house and make it look that little bit more lived in. Anybody that built their own home will appreciate the mess and the unsightly appearance that goes hand-in-hand with this major construction.
As such, once the hard work is done, most people want to create a more inviting and appealing aesthetic. Couch grass is a superb choice for anyone that is perhaps hoping to achieve fast growth and coverage without having to spend the big bucks.
At Musturf, we are growers and suppliers of high-quality grass right here in Australia. We not only grow and supply, but we also install and are here to care for the best turf and grass in the country. What’s more, we also have a range of exceptional grass varieties that will suit the needs and budgets of all of our customers.
When you choose us to source your grass, you can feel confident in the fact that all of our range has been globally researched and tested comprehensively on Australian soil.
Past customers have enquired about couch grass types in hope of determining exactly what they stand to gain by choosing this product over others. At Musturf, one of the main benefits associated with couch is its ability to grow and recover quickly.
It is one of the ideal choices for those that have a patch of ground that they want to transform from dull dirt to lush greenery without having to wait an inordinate amount of time.
This makes it an exceptionally smart choice for those that have large areas to cover, such as public areas or parks. What’s more, in terms of its look, when it is healthy and receiving optimal sunlight its fine leafy blades are dark green in colour. As such, those in possession of a cylinder mower will quickly appreciate the superb bowling green look that can be achieved.
Most people will look at those smooth and inviting surfaces and expect that a lot of money must have been required to achieve it. However, the truth is that couch grass in Australia is one of the more budget-friendly options. Multiple crops can be grown each year and in the even of it becoming damaged, those that invest in it can expect that it will recover very quickly.
Here at Musturf, we encourage those that choose this grass to ensure that they set aside time to look after and maintain their couch. The reason for this is that when left unattended it will continue to grow and can spread rapidly, so to avoid it taking over other patches of ground that you have set aside for flowers or other species of grass, it is worthwhile to mow and maintain it regularly.
We appreciate that in ordering grass you hope that it will be delivered promptly so that there is little chance that it will become compromised before it has been installed. Here at Musturf, all our turf comes with a 10-year LSA product warranty and you can rest assured that we will process your order promptly and ship it to you as soon as the very next day.
If you have large areas to cover and you are looking for a budget-friendly grass, couch grass is a great option for you.
Of all the couch grass types, Nullarbor is Australia’s best performing couch grass, and therefore that is what we grow at Musturf’s turf farms to bring you a quality grass that can perform well in the harsh Australian climate.
Couch grass has come a long way over the years. It has been refined through breeding and now offers a richer colour, greater tolerance to wear and drought and is much softer to the touch, making it suitable for domestic spaces as well as larger recreational areas.
Couch grass naturally grows quickly, so much so that some people have thought of it as being a weed. However, this makes it perfect for areas like sports grounds and parks because when it inevitably becomes damaged from high foot traffic, events and sports, it can quickly grow and repair itself.
It is fine leafed and produces a stunning green colour, filling large spaces with character and life.
Couch grass does take quite a lot of maintenance, but with the right care, it can create a stunning lawn that you can be proud of. If you are a keen gardener with time to spend on your grass, this could be the perfect choice for you, and best of all, it is a budget-friendly option.
Unlike some other grass varieties, couch grass is a true sun lover and will need the sunshine to excel. This means that it can work well in Australia, as we often benefit from a warmer climate. It is worth noting however, that couch grass will need to be given enough water or fertiliser if it is to continue to thrive. If the grass does not receive enough water, it can suffer from dry or bald patches.
You may also need to de-thatch your couch grass to keep it looking fresh and to allow water and other nutrients to get to the soil. Thatching is where grass can die and stays on the surface of the grass. Over time, this will naturally be broken down, but if there is a large build-up, you may need to remove it manually so that it does not stop your grass from growing healthily.
Couch grass needs to be mowed an average amount to keep it looking in tip-top condition. The more often it is mowed, the better it will look, and it will be healthier. This can be done with a cylinder or rotary mower.
In order to stop your couch grass from spreading into unwanted areas like your flower beds, make sure you regularly edge your grass and pull out any runners.
With a little maintenance, couch grass can be a great choice of turf for your garden or commercial space. Call us for more advice on the best grass for you.
