Hard wearing with high traffic tolerance

One of the best features of Nullabor 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.


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

During winter, Nullabor 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 turf sward. Nullarbor Couch has good tolerance to broadleaf herbicides for weed control.

Ideal for home lawns, sports or commercial projects

Producing a very dense turf, Nullarbor Couch Grass 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.

Active Turf Supplies is fully accredited and inspected by Australia’s only turf accreditation program, AusGAP.
