About Cynodon

Hard as nails even when things get tough

Cynodon, also know as couch grass, is a perennial, indigenous, fine-leafed grass variety that looks delicate, but is surprisingly hard-wearing. It is naturally found in tropical regions, meaning it prefers full sun and fairly regular watering. It prefers loamy, fertile soil, yet can be grown in a broad variety of conditions. Couch has a high salt tolerance, making it perfect for seaside settings.

CYNODON ADVANTAGES

Reasons to love Cynodon

Cynodon is found naturally in tropical areas where annual rainfall ranges from 600–1,800mm, but it is water efficient and can survive drought conditions, meaning it can be planted anywhere with full sun. (It does not like shady areas.)

The high salt tolerance of Cynodon makes it a good choice for coastal regions. Its toughness makes it ideal for sports fields and its fine leaf means that it is great for golf courses too.
