I understand Tempe is actually Greenlees Park couch but it has the
same characteristics as described. RSGC is Santa Anna couch.
Sutherland is converting gradually to Queensland blue couch - more
weed resilient, green inï¿½ winter, slightly coarser leaves, needs
lots of water in Sydney.

John ï¿½ Canberra uses Santa Anna
couch, like Tempe.ï¿½ Very hardy, and uses far less
water than bent or fescue, but does go dormant in cold
weather (looks brown and people assume it has died,
but it responds once soil temperature climbs again)..ï¿½
Buffalo is enthusiastic, but too coarse-leafed for
good croquet.ï¿½ We mow at least once/week, and twice in
peak growing season.ï¿½ Ideally you can mow to 3mm but
this requires a good machine & operator, and a bit
longer is better able to handle drought & better
for gateball.ï¿½ We put the irrigation on for 20
minutes/station every third night in summer.
