About QLD Blue Couch:
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: Sow only when the soil temperature is consistently over 21 degrees. 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.
Hand 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 weedkiller. Once weeds have died off, go to next step. This helps create a weed-free lawn.
Step 3: Rake Lawn Planting Fertiliser into the 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.

Disclaimer: We now personally grow and test every batch of QLD blue couch seed we receive from our supplier, therefore we no longer refund or replace seed that does not grow. Since 99% of our customers and our own testing has shown that our seed is good, it's not fair that we should be responsible for the rare few who's seed does not grow due to gardening error, acts of nature or some other reason beyond our control.

Keeping Your Lawn Healthy and Weed-free
Feeding: Lawns need regular feeding to resist wear, disease and heat stress. Feed-in Spring, early Summer and Autumn. Use lawn food which has been specifically developed to provide all of the essential nutrients necessary for a healthy, lush, green lawn.
Watering: Regular deep watering is better than frequent light applications and makes lawn care easier and more water-efficient. Wet the top 10-12cm of soil to encourage deeper root growth. Hollow coring using a lawn aerator prior to Summer will assist water penetration.
Mowing Heights: After the lawn has established, during Spring and Summer we recommend a cutting height of 20mm-25mm. During Autumn and Winter this should be increased to 30-35mm.
