We’d hazard a guess that most people don’t think about their lawn very much. In fact, we’d say that most people just water whatever grass happens to be out there in the garden without giving much thought to the type of grass it is, and what kinds of advantages another species of grass might offer them as home owners.
Even though grass happens to be our business here at Rivers Edge Turf, we understand why most people don’t give their own grass too much thought. After all, for most people, grass is for waling or running on. If you’re a kid, it’s probably also good for rolling on and doing cartwheels on, which is why sometimes kids are the best judge of the quality and character of a grass!
A Few Notes on Couch Grass in Australia
You may have heard about something called Couch grass. Maybe your gardener or the lawnmower guy has mentioned it before. If you’ve never heard of it or have little knowledge or interest in grasses in general, you may be wondering: what is Couch grass?
Couch grass is actually one of the most popular grasses in Australia, but did you know that lots of people consider it a weed? It can grow so fast that it invades garden beds and other areas. This makes it both a blessing and a curse really. For parks and public areas, Couch grass is lush and fast growing. This means that any damage done to the turf, either through sports, or traffic, is repaired pretty quickly.
