LANDSCAPE RANGE TURBOCOTE COUCHGRASS

If you are after a drought resistant lawn capable of withstanding a dry hot Summer then our Landscape Range Turbocote Couch Grass Blend is a great choice.

A WARM SEASON blend of Unhulled and Hulled Bermuda grasses. It will establish quickly in temperatures of 30 Degrees + and produce a relatively course bladed grass with good wear resistance and turf recovery.

A WARM SEASON BLEND:

  • 70% Unhulled Bermuda Couchgrass
  • 30% Hulled Bermuda Couchgrass
  • Coated Seed

Optimum Sowing Temperature:  Between 25 and 30 degrees celsius. 

Recommended sowing in SPRING and SUMMER

WARM SEASON GRASS:  This variety thrives in warmer months.  In some states where temperatures drop significantly it will go into dormancy, where growth is limited and discoloration can occur. 

Colour and growth will re-establish when warmer weather returns, however oversowing with a cool season grass can provide all year round colour.

Grass Type Characteristics:

  • Establishment Rate: Good (at optimum sowing time)
  • Drought Tolerance: Excellent

Watering:

*During the first 30 days watering may be necessary 3-4 times a day.  Seed should not be allowed to dry out.
