Couch Lawn Care – Just quoted on this Tiff Tuff Couch Lawn (Cynodon dactylon) in Burraneer, NSW, Sydney, and it’s badly infested with Onion Weed as you can see. Note TifTuf Couch is one of many varieties of Couch Grass.
When we get the go ahead to rejuvenate this lawn, we will do the following:
- Fertilise with our professional grade granular fertiliser
- Spray all lawn areas with Bayer’s Specticle pre-emergent herbicide to prevent winter weed germination. This is done every summer to help prepare for the following winter.
- Spray all Tiff Tuff Couch lawn with Duke Herbicide. Duke (by Indigo) is the only product that will get rid of Onion Weed in all Warm Season Grasses (inc Couch, Buffalo, Kikuyu etc except is not registered for use on Queensland Blue Couch)
- All broadleaf weeds including clover, oxalis, flatweed will be eradicated the next week with Warhead Trio (also by Indigo Specialty Products).
- Other weeds like nutgrass, mullumbimby couch, wintergrass can be eradicated with Recondo Herbicide (by Indigo).
- Also we can get rid of Kikuyu infestations in couch using Recondo.
- Basically, we can get rid of all weeds in Couch Grass.
The main advice we will give the client is to mow lawn regularly and only remove a third of the grass’s leaf at each mow.
