A great grass for full sun areas

Nullarbor Couch is classed as a warm season grass, like most grasses grown in Australia. It has been researched, evaluated and trialled for the past 20 years to deliver long-lasting performance in full sun areas. This variety requires at least 6 hours of sunlight per day so it is ideal for full sun areas. If you are looking for a more shade tolerant variety, you may consider Sir Grange (Zeon) Zoysia or Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo.

  • Extensively researched, trialled and tested
  • Ideal for full sun
  • Needs 6 hours sunlight/day

Hard wearing with high traffic tolerance

One of the best features of Nullarbor Couch is its ability to tolerate high foot traffic from people and animals, hence its popularity across both residential and sports landscaping projects such as football and cricket grounds.

  • High traffic tolerance
  • Hard wearing
  • Rapid recovery from wear and stress

Maintenance

Nullarbor Couch has higher maintenance requirements than some other grass types. For example, during the summer it is best to mow it every 5-7 days to ensure it doesn’t invade any areas where it is not wanted.

During winter, Nullarbor Couch has low dormancy – this is when the grass is in a dormant state and the plant focuses resources on the roots. Consequently, it has an early start to growth after winter, and also has rapid recovery from wear and other stresses.

It’s best to apply a Lawn Solutions Australia recommended fertiliser 2-3 times per year to maintain a dense vigorous lawn.  Nullarbor Couch has good tolerance to broadleaf herbicides for weed control.

  • Low dormancy
  • Tolerant of low mowing
  • Strong horizontal leaf growth habit

Ideal for home lawns, sports or commercial projects

Producing a very dense turf, Nullarbor Couch is widely used for sports and commercial landscaping projects as well as home gardens, as it is excellent for hard wearing areas yet soft to walk on and environmentally friendly.

  • Dark green colour
  • Fine leaf blade
  • Soft to walk on

We are very happy with our new lawn laid recently by Daleys turf. We found Harley and all the staff at Daleys not only friendly but very professional. We found them very competitive and the job was carried out with the minimal of fuss. We would have no hesitation in recommending Daleys Turf.
Bruce Fraser
Our excellent experience with Daleys Turf started when Harley Schenk arrived at our home to assess our requirements for a new front lawn. His expertise coupled with his friendly manner and detailed explanation created an immediate confidence that assurred us we had chosen the best company for our needs. Harley arrived on schedule, was well presented and wasted no time in preparing the quote. On the day of installation again he arrived on time with his colleague Patrick and together they carried out the task. They were painstaking in their efforts in preparing the site and laying the new turf. I have witnessed many lawns being laid in our suburb and I can honestly state that my lawn stands out from the rest, due to the quality of the product and the meticulous standard of Harley's workmanship. If you think your lawn is in need of replacement do not hesitate to engage Harley at Daleys Turf, you will not be disappointed.

Terry and Harley worked absolute wonders! So happy with our new lawn... from start to finish they were really easy to deal with and offered great advice! As soon as it was laid it looked like it had been there forever and it took to the soil beautifully! Terry was kind enough to give me his sprinkler and tap timer when he noticed ours had been broken - above and beyond! Pictures just under 4 weeks after installation - front before mow, inside fence after it's first mow! These are unedited... it's so green!! Thank you Daleys Turf!
Karra Haight
We have no hesitation in recommending Daley's Turf to you. They have delivered a first rate product in a professional manner. There was great communication with the company. The turf was ordered, an onsite inspection and discussion of alternatives and in no time we have a beautiful lawn. Special thanks to Harley for making it happen.
