“Santa Ana Couch is a Popular all-around Lawn”

Botanical Name:  Cynodon dactylon x c. Transvaalensis
Couch Grass
Warm Season Grass

Santa Ana Couch is a hybrid green couch with a soft dense fine leaf lawn that needs a full sun position. Although commonly used on sports grounds and golf courses, this drought tolerant lawn is fantastic for children and dogs.  Santa Ana Couch grass has a creeping/runner growth and a deep root system, making it exceptionally fast with self-repairing. In Summer it recovers rapidly from any wear and damage. The runners with their deep root system will, however, find their way under any garden edges and pop up in your garden beds.

Drought Tolerance Couch is very drought tolerant, requiring very little water once established.
Fertilising Couch should be fertilised in April, September & November.  Water in well.
Hard Wearing & Self Repairing  Couch is very hard wearing, rapidly self-repairs.
Leaf Dense fine leaf, soft to touch.
Mowing Height Low
Couch lawns need to be mowed at a low setting.
Summer Colour  Mid to light green.  The more fertilise, the darker it will become. 
Root System Deep
Deep watering (lots of water at one time less regularly) promotes the root system to go lower into the soil profile.
Runners Couch is a very invasive grass.  The turf runners grow under the ground as well as on the top of the ground.  Great for large areas.
Sun vs Shade  Full sun
Weed Control Hand picking any weeds by their roots, is ideal. Weed and Feed products are great to use on Couch.  Before using any chemical, always read the product label for full directions, application, safety directions and guidelines.
Winter Colour Couch will become dormant over winter.
Couch in Victoria over winter, will lose its lush green colour, becoming a green/yellow colour.  In very cold winters will turn yellow/brown, resulted from the frosts burning the turf’s leaves. If you do get a heavy frost you can help to stop it from burning the lawn by giving quick water in the morning to wash the ice off the leaves.  Once the weather warms up in Spring, you will mow the dead leaves off leaving behind a green lawn.
