Fine leafed and manicured to perfection
Is it real grass or astroturf? This is the question that will come to mind when passers-by stop to admire your perfectly manicured Couch grass lawn. Its dark green colour and dense texture create a velvety finish that is perfect for golf courses, sports fields and domestic gardens.
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.
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.
Cynodon has fine blades and grows to be dense, creating a rich green lawn-covering that is designed to impress.
Cynodon can tolerate high foot-fall and is excellent at repairing itself from stress, damage and
long periods of drought.
Cynodon’s density leaves little room for weed growth and it also tolerates broadleaf pesticides exceptionally well.
