Kurapia Ground Cover

Kurapia ground cover has become very popular in Los Angeles, the same way it has become popular everywhere else in California and surrounding states. LA is a busy city, so ground covers that can take care of themselves without compromising their health and curb appeal are of very high interest for Los Angeles home owners and property investors. This is where Kurapia ground cover comes in. Kurapia ground cover sod is a new lawn cover alternative that offers LA lawn owners a lawn that never needs to be mowed, saves up to 60% on watering and blooms miniature white flowers twice annually for a uniquely appealing look. Although Kurapia ground cover is new to the sod industry, Kurapia is steadily growing in popularity and has sold out every single year. This shouldn't come as a surprise considering Kurapia ground cover gives you a lawn you will never have to mow, require less water in the warm, sunny city of Los Angeles, and gives your lawn a unique look. One of the L.A. cities that loves Kurapia ground cover the most is Beverly Hills! We wouldn't be surprised if Kurapia ground cover eventually makes it to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

  • Hi Howard great to hear you are happy with going for the Hybrid tall fescue mix instead of bermudagrass. I am sure the dogs are doing much better in the area with this colder weather. If you need any seed to feel free to give us a call.

  • Bolero Plus Dwarf Fescue is Sod and Seed’s healthiest and most appealing landscaping option. Even when you don’t water it, it thrives with little water and rebounds swiftly from any form of injury. This product is working well for us in Los Angeles.
