is a high density, medium to fine leaf textured turf, which is dark green in colour and produces a high-quality and high-density turf sward (cover). Requiring at least 6-7 hours of direct sunlight per day, Grand Prix is a thick, lush turf that is exceptionally soft and spongy under foot.
Grand Prix’s superior drought and heat resistance, wear tolerance and fast recovery is due to its strong root growth. The key attributes are the wear tolerance which studies have proven that Grand Prix is very close to 2 times more wear tolerant than other common green couch varieties available.
Weed control requirements are minimal due to the dense habit and it does not require much watering to maintain a lush green appearance.
Other places the Grand Prix is used: Townsville race track, Melbourne Cricket ground (MCG), Allan Boarder cricket wicket (Brisbane), Capitol Hill in Canberra (parliament house).
