  • I’ve had great luck with this plant – Lippia. It is a pretty tough plant, and it looks great in my yard. I love the color and texture of the leaves. I installed it about a month ago, and it has filled in nicely and is healthy.

  • Thank you Tina! I am happy to hear your client was happy with the kurapia sod. Sod delivery to the Marina District is always available with us whenever you need it. I hope they enjoy the new lawn alternative and enjoy kicking the mower to the curb.
    To everyone reading Tina from Home Touch Designs had a customer that had a backyard but in one of the steepest areas in San Francisco, the Marina District and to make it even harder the area did not have access to mow regularly. The choice of kurapia sod meant we could have the area ground covered, never mow, use less water, and be able to manually trim with sheers for edging if needed.
    Kurapia sod will work as a normal lawn as well, so lets hope the grandchildren agree.

  • Crazy to see Frog Fruit now becoming lawn after I battled it for so long in Texas. Texas frog fruit looked a bit different ours was not this refined looking. How does frog fruit do in San Jose and whats the lead time?
