Green Couch (Bermudagrass) Seed - agriCOTE Enhanced AG-HULLED-GREEN-COUCH Barenbrug

Description

Green Couch (Bermudagrass) Seed (agriCOTE Enhanced)

Green Couch (Bermudagrass) is a warm-season perennial grass that is well adapted to tropical and subtropical climates.

Green Couch has a fine to medium texture with a leaf structure approximately 1.5mm wide and 20-160mm long. It has a dense growth habit, which tends to become a finer texture as the density increases. Below the surface, the root system assists in stabilising the soil but will also invade adjacent areas if not controlled.

Green Couch has a fine blade with a rich, bright to dark green colour.

Green Couch is a vigorous grass that propagates from both stolon’s (above the ground) and rhizomes (below the ground).

Where is Green Couch (Bermudagrass) suitable to be used;

  • Residential Lawns
  • Tees
  • Fairways.
  • Sporting Grounds.
  • Airports.
  • Commercial Landscapes.
  • Amenity Areas
  • Parklands
  • Roadsides

Why Choose Green Couch (Bermudagrass);

  • Low amounts of thatch.
  • Good herbicide resistance.
  • High drought tolerance.
  • Suitable for high-traffic areas.
  • Aggressive growth habit, allowing for quick self-repair.

Green Couch does best in full sun situations, and performance in shaded areas is average.  A shade tolerance of just 10 per cent, compared to Zoysia at 40 per cent and Buffalo at 70 per cent, means a backyard that is closed in or has a lot of tree life will have Couch underperforming.

Green couch has very high drought tolerance. GreenCouch will look far healthier if watered regularly. However, it will survive long, dry spells if required.

Green Couch is a physically tough grass, able to withstand high amounts of traffic with ease – perfect for backyards that are child or pet riddled. Its dense coverage and ability to quickly repair itself means that any damage is soon fixed.

Green Couch requires an extended period of 18 – 25oC+ to germinate successfully.  Once established, it will withstand cold conditions; however, in predominantly cool climates (i.e. Tasmania) germination can be challenging.

Green Couch performs best in soils with moderate acidity (pH 5.8-7.0), but tolerates more alkaline conditions.

Green Couch (Bermudagrass) has runners that spread both above ground (stolon’s) and below ground (rhizomes). This makes the grass great at ‘self-repairing’, and any bare patches that you may have from your initial sowing of seed will, more often than not, be quickly filled in without any need for a second sow.

Green Couch becomes dormant in winter and may discolour, particularly in sub-tropical climates.  A Couch surface can be oversown with a Perennial Ryegrass to improve winter performance.  This also works to protect the Couch from heavy traffic during dormancy.

Directions Of Use

Seeding rates:

Minimal expertise is required to manage and maintain a Green Couch lawn, and the ongoing management cost is low.

Planting Tips:

  • Plant into soft topsoil or sandy loam.
  • Broadcast the seed at, or very near, the soil surface and incorporate lightly with raking.
  • Best coverage and reduced seed wastage are achieved by using a seed spreader for the size of the area.
  • The soil must remain damp throughout the germination period and must be maintained for at least 1-2 weeks after sowing through irrigation or natural rainfall.
  • Apply fertiliser several times per year to improve the overall look and performance of the Green Couch.

    After the Green Couch (Bermudagrass) seed germinates, it's generally recommended to wait until the grass has established itself and reached a certain level of maturity before applying selective herbicides. This period typically ranges from 6 to 8 weeks after germination. Still, it can vary depending on weather conditions, soil health, and the specific growth rate of the grass in your location. Using a wick wiper before the seed germinates will not affect the seed, proving the herbicide does not have any residual properties.

  4. Do I need to use a starter type fertiliser with Green Couch (Bermudagrass) Seed - agriCOTE Enhanced, or does the seed coat negate this need?

    Agricote seed coating technology provides immediate seedling nutrition and growth promotion. Agricote does not replace the need for fertiliser once the seed has germinated. There are specialised 'seed starter' fertilisers available. We recommend reading the 'directions for use' regarding information on application timeframes pre-seeding on the products.

  • Soil must remain damp throughout the germination period and must be maintained for at least 1-2 weeks after sowing, through irrigation or natural rainfall.
  • Apply fertiliser several times per year to improve the overall look and performance of the green couch.

When to Plant / Sow:

  • Spring to late Summer (if access to watering) with soil temperatures consistently above 18 degrees. Cooler climates should plant in Summer.

Germination:

Water:

  • Keep moist until the roots are well established, water consumption after this time should be significantly reduced.

Fertilising:

  • Requires generous Nitrogen applications for optimum performance during the growing season.
  • Fertiliser application recommended approximately 6 weeks after sowing during the active growth phase.

First Mowing:

  • When grass is 1/3 taller than the desired mowing height.
  • Green Couch performs best at mowing heights of 13-38mm.

Mowing Frequency:

  • 1-2 times/week during active growth and remove no more than 1/3 of the leaf per mowing.

Mowing Tips:

  • The lower you mow it, the more often you need to mow.
  • In shady areas increase the mowing height of the grass.
  • Mowing is the best form of weed control.
