The Sunshine Coast and many other areas of Queensland are surrounded by beautiful, pristine beaches. As wonderful as this is, it can also mean a high level of salinity in the soil of your garden. Finding the right turf to withstand high levels of salinity, as well as warmer weather almost all year round, is essential if you want your garden to be one that you are proud of.

Fortunately, we have found the ultimate turf for any coastal application. Oz Tuff displays great resistance to areas with high salinity and it both thrives and retains good colour in coastal environments.

Here’s everything you need to know about Oz Tuff for your landscaped garden.

What is Oz Tuff Turf?

Oz Tuff is a turf of the green couch variety. It grows slowly with a deep green colour. It has a high salt tolerance making it ideal for coastal applications. Oz Tuff has an extensive root system which is deeper and stronger than other couch varieties, making it perfect for hotter climates.

What Are the Benefits Of Oz Tuff Turf for Your Garden?

Oz Tuff lawn is perfect for your garden on the coast for a number of reasons:

  1. Oz Tuff turf is low-maintenance: You can mow Oz Tuff turf quite low and it will still maintain its green, full look. It’s also slow growing, so after mowing it short you won’t need to mow it too often. You’ll have plenty of time to kick a ball or play other outdoor sports on your nice, short lawn.
  2. It won’t turn yellow in saline conditions: Many grass varieties become yellow and refuse to grow in saline conditions. Oz Tuff is well adapted to high levels of salt in soil and will thrive in this type of environment.

What Lawn Maintenance is Required for Oz Tuff Turf?

Very little lawn maintenance is required for Oz Tuff Turf. It doesn’t require much mowing and should be kept short anyway (up to 35 mm in height). Because Oz Tuff is used to thriving in areas that are full of salt and are nutritionally deficient, it doesn’t require as much fertilisation as other couch varieties. Fertilising twice a year is enough to keep it looking lush and green all year round.
