Redgrass is a warm season grass occurring along the eastern seaboard of Australia. It grows close to the ground with little foliage higher than 10cm if left unmowed or ungrazed. It produces slender reddish-purple flowering stems and is extremely hardy, withstanding long periods of drought. Redgrass enters dormancy during the winter. Grows in a variety of soil types but is best suited to heavy clays and loams and can establish itself in cracking soils. High drought tolerance, high heat tolerance and low to moderate frost tolerance.
Also known as Kidney grass because of the shape of the leaves, Dichondra is an attractive groundcover used as a substitute for traditional lawn grass. Forms a living mulch that inhibits weeds and reduces evaporation. It will grow readily in most climates and in fertile free draining soil. It is useful to sow between pavers and stepping stones and in places where common lawn grassed may not grow. For optimum results it is recommended that Dichondra is sown from early Spring to late Autumn.
Weeping grass is a cool season tufted perennial grass, which produces year round green growth. Spreads very slowly by short rhizomes under the soil and survives well in strongly acidic soils. Because of its attractive appearance, its persistence and high grazing value gives this grass a wide range of uses. Suitable for use on roadsides, parks, domestic lawns, and river & stream edges to reduce erosion. High drought tolerance, high frost tolerance, medium salt tolerance and shade tolerance.
A warm season grass that once established it requires less frequent but deep watering. Can be sown in light to heavy soil profiles ranging from moderately saline to moderately acidic. Couchgrass has a medium fine foliage and dark green colour. In cooler areas some Couch grass can go dormant but recent years has seen varieties developed for year round green colour.
Provides an attractive durable turf with very good tolerance to heat stress, drought, wear and disease.
Kikuyu grass is a high protein sub tropical permanent pasture. It is a vigorous creeping perennial grass, which spreads by underground rhizomes and above ground stolons. Kikuyu grows equally well in acidic or alkaline soils but the pH of the soil may decide the type of fertilizer you may require. Avoid planting in the heat of summer unless irrigation is available, or when it frosts. Ideally the best time to plant is in the Autumn, as rainfall is usually more reliable and moisture evaporation from the soil is less.
