Before you choose your new lawn, you want to make sure you do your research. It takes a lot of time and effort to have a lawn installed. It’s not something you want to repeat a couple of years down the track because you didn’t invest in the right type or didn’t receive good advice.
Where you live has a great impact on the type of turf you choose. The Sunshine Coast and many other areas of Queensland are surrounded by the gorgeous coastline. As beautiful as it is, this also brings a high level of salt into the soil of your backyard, which needs to be considered when you choose your grass.
Fortunately, we have done the research for you and found the ultimate turf for any coastal application. Oz Tuff Sports Grass displays great resistance to areas with high salinity and it both thrives and retains good colour in coastal environments.
Here are 5 things you need to know about Oz Tuff Sports Grass for your landscaped garden.
- Oz Tuff Sports Grass Has a High Salt Tolerance
While other turf will yellow and wilt in salty conditions, Oz Tuff Sports Grass has its name for a reason. It’s been specially adapted to grow in salty conditions and will actually thrive in a high saline environment. It will keep its green colour and will tolerate all high salt conditions.
- Oz Tuff Sports Grass is a Slow Grower
Turf that grows too quickly can soon become very high-maintenance. Oz Tuff Sports Grass is slow growing and grows with a deep, green colour. Because it grows so slowly, you won’t need to mow it much. Oz Tuff should be kept quite short to keep it in optimum health (up to 35mm in height)
- Oz Tuff Sports Grass is More Drought Resistant
Even though Oz Tuff is a couch grass, its root system is quite extensive and grows deeper and stronger than other couch varieties. This means it’s able to tolerate hotter climates with ease. You won’t need to water it too often, giving you more time and money as you save on watering expenses.
- Oz Tuff Sports Has Very Low Nutritional Requirements
Because Oz Tuff is used to thriving in areas that are salty and nutritionally deficient, they are well adapted to low nutrition soil. Fertilising twice a year is enough to keep Oz Tuff turf looking green and fresh all year round.
