Couch Grass? Grass Couch? Pronounced ‘C-OO-CH’!

Many Couch grass cultivars are available, with varieties cultivated to adapt better to shade and prevention of disease. All things considered, Couch, together with Kikuyu, is the hardiest available turf variety best suited for Australian conditions. Many playing surfaces such as parks and golf courses actively use Couch grass due to its excellent regenerative abilities, something that grasses such as buffalo lack in comparison.
