Description

Queensland Blue Couch is a soft, fine leaf grass which has a blue green colour and has been grown in Southeast Queensland yards for many years. It thrives in hot sunny conditions but is not suitable for shaded or high traffic areas. Queensland Blue Couch is low growing and does not thatch like some other varieties of grass. After extended periods of dry weather it will recover quickly following watering or rainfall. With some regular maintenance Qld Blue Couch will provide a lush attractive lawn.

Planting a Beautiful Lawn:

Ideal Sowing Time: Germination is most vigorous when soil temperature is over 21C. Sow from late September to late February.

Step 1: Loosen soil to a depth of 8cm. Work the top 2cm of soil to a fine smooth texture (a load of sandy-loam topsoil will help). On hard clay soils, apply some Gypsum.

Step 2: Check soil acidity – pH6 to 7 is ideal. Adjust acid soils with some Lime.

Handy Hint

After soil preparation, leave area for about 2 weeks, when weeds begin to germinate. Watering will help initiate germination of weeds. Then spray entire area with a glyphosate weed killer. Once weeds have died off, go to next step. This helps create a weed-free lawn.

Step 3: Rake Lawn Planting Fertiliser into he soil. Spread Queensland Blue Couch Lawn Seed thinly and evenly at a rate of 10g per square metre. Rake lightly into the surface and firm down or tread seed into surface.

Step 4: Water with fine spray and keep damp until lawn is established. Lawns sown in late Spring or Summer need frequent watering during the first summer.

Step 5: Mow when grass is about 8cm high, removing only the top 3cm.
