Windsor Green sets the standard in Australia for lawn selection. It has proven superiority in both heat and drought tolerance. Its excellent winter colour retention (in comparison to other warm-season lawns), and lower thatch production means that Windsor Green Couch is the ultimate low-maintenance home lawn.

Less mowing and watering are some other advantages, along with its less aggressive nature, self-repairing qualities, and premium year-round appearance.


Excellent year-round colour retention

A product of thorough research and development, lawn specialists choose Windsor Green as being the peak lawn for home gardeners in South Australia. "After writing the first three pamphlets three decades ago on the well-known United States bred Santa Ana, finally Windsor Green can be stamped as far superior to any other couch or for that matter any other lawn in full sun for South Australia." Paul Munn.

Low Water Use

Windsor Green is by nature a lawn that can survive on low amounts of water. It is categorized as a warm-season grass which means it thrives in our hot climate. Its slow growth means it requires less water, making it a responsible choice to conserve water. Remember, once established, Windsor Green is extremely drought tolerant.

Low Maintenance

Windsor Green can be described as a semi-dwarf variety of lawn, meaning less work for you. Windsor Green requires less scarifying and edging and is less aggressive than other couch grasses available in South Australia. Because of this, there is less chance of garden invasion, making it easier to manage around garden areas. Windsor Green was specifically developed as a low-maintenance lawn, so it's perfectly suited for the home.

Hard Wearing

Excellent self-repairing qualities.

Windsor Green is hardy in almost all full sun conditions and is very hard-wearing. Its dense carpet-like growth allows it to withstand high amounts of traffic. It is perfect for areas where low maintenance and low water use lawn is required.

Self Repairing

Windsor Green is a self-repairing lawn. In the event that Windsor Green is damaged, it repairs itself with its fine root system enabling it to recover from wear and damage without having to replace sections of the lawn.

Superior Year-Round Colour

Windsor Green retains its green colour all year round on the Adelaide Plains.

Pet Resistant

Unlike some lawns, Windsor Green will recover from dog and cat urine damage. Its root system allows it to recover from damage caused by cats and dogs.



Requires minimum watering.

Renowned lawn specialists all agree that Couch requires less water than Kikuyu. Once Windsor Green is established, it will require a minimum amount of water to maintain it. This is possible for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is a warm season grass and therefore thrives in warm, dry conditions. Secondly, it is able to store water in its rhizomes (root system), meaning the soil can dry out without the grass dying.

Windsor Green should be maintained at 10-15mm high during spring, summer and autumn, then 20mm high during winter. You can use either a conventional rotary mower or a reel-type roller mower. You will need an edge trimmer to keep the edges tidy.
