Rapid Green Couch Blend is perfect for the modern challenges the home gardener faces. This unique blend creates an extremely hardwearing lush green lawn that will thrive in warm to dry conditions.
Rapid Green Couch needs less water to survive than most other lawn varieties and grows in nearly all soil types.
The Annual Ryegrass will come up quickly while the couch will take longer to establish. Containing a nursery cover of "easy to establish" lawn varieties to provide early germination and greening in 7-10 days, while allowing the slower germinating couch time to establish.
The Annual Ryegrass will transition out leaving the couch to establish fully. As it includes the cool season Ryegrass it’s a good option for Southern States of Australia. Northern Australian States may wish to choose a straight couch variety.

Apply 2-3kg of fertiliser per 100sqm (20–30 g/m2). Once established the lawn (usually two to three months) will require a high analysis fertiliser to continue to thrive (Renovator Plus).
