Wintergreen Couch grass is considered as the best all-round lawn on the market and is mid green in colour.

It is a fine textured lawn with a strong growth structure which thrives in full sunlight and has superior drought tolerance. It is extremely hard wearing, soft to touch and fantastic for children, dogs and high traffic areas. It is well suited to Australia’s climate and is widely used in home lawns, sports grounds and golf courses.

Wintergreen Couch grass has a creeping/runner growth and a deep root system, making it exceptionally fast with self repairing. 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.

Wintergreen Couch loves full sun. In a shaded or mostly shaded area the couch will become very thin or may not grow.

Wintergreen Couch is ideally kept mowed short. No more than 30-40% of the leaf should be removed in any one mow, removing lawn clippings.
