Turf Varieties

Selected species: Seashore paspalum

Seashore paspalum is a turfgrass suitable for salt affected sites where other turfgrasses struggle badly or die, and will grow across a wide range of soil pH from very acid to alkaline. Like the couches, it is a medium textured turf best suited to short mowing heights. Seashore paspalum has moderate shade and wear tolerance. It survives at low fertility, but responds well to added fertiliser which also helps to supress incidence of disease.

Mowing height is 10 mm to 40 mm.
