“We love the Kurapia in our backyard with white blossoms! It is not affected by the frost that comes in winter, and withstands the intense heat (109-115) of summer months. I do not water it often, maybe once a month or less. The bees love the flowers”
Lynn Render, Ojai CA
“I love this plant. I’m an avid gardener, so I have a lot of experience with plants. We got it in pretty late, but it is doing really well, we love it and the flowers look amazing.”
Linda Carmichael, Lompoc, CA
“We recently planted White Kurapia in our front yard. There were some small patches due to the recent Southern California heat wave but our yard fared MUCH better than our neighbor’s turf lawns.”
Kacie Goff, Ventura CA
“My San Francisco garden is very water conscious, an imperative given our persistent drought! I chose Kurapia because it requires very little water and covers the ground quickly. It is growing very nicely and will fill in over the next few months.“
Debra Nelson, San Francisco
“We used the Kurapia New White. Our neighbors are thrilled with the progress of our water smart front yard and keeping some “green” by using your Kurapia. Thank you for your product!”
Judy and Kip Gomez, Monrovia, CA
“We love our New White Kurapia, it has held up with our new puppy, and we are considering extending it out to where our puppy has destroyed our grass. I highly recommend Kurapia!”
Deborah Kellogg, Los Angeles
I purchased this in November 2021 to replace my front lawn that purposely had not been watered for six years and was dead. I live in zone 10b (extremely high temps). Watering for a short period once a week was just fine. The Kurapia did great! Continued to spread, and the bees love the little white flowers. Dealing with the grower and making the purchase was super easy. Questions were answered immediately, and delivery was clean and efficient.
Jan Swinton, Fallbrook CA
We planted Kurapia on our street strip in May 2022 and also for our main lawn in July 2022. The main lawn is still filling in, but it looks great! We planted Kurapia New White for both installations.
Brent & Heather Anderson, Gilroy CA
I ordered one flat to try at home as I am a landscape designer in Houston, Texas and frankly Kurapia sounded too good to be true. I planted on April 15 and the Kurapia filled in 3 months later. Very pleased with your product! It’s holding up very well to human and paw traffic. I will definitely be recommending to clients. Thank you!
Carole, Landscape Designer, Houston
We replaced 1600 square feet of lawn with Kurapia. Now it gets watered for 5 minutes, twice a week and mowed every six months. Kurapia is one tough competitor and a big labor and water saver. We are looking for more areas to install Kurapia and look forward to the new pink flower variety. Our committee was thrilled with the results of Kurapia!
John Hiatt, Gardener, Cal Poly Pomona
“We can say that we fully believe in this product and its future as the leading turf and groundcover alternative. We have seen the results first hand and definitely look forward to installing it on all of our future projects.”

After extensive research and investigation, Kurapia was chosen for my projects for the following reasons: aesthetics, growth habit, drought tolerance, erosion control, weed suppression, disease resistance, maintenance and most importantly – Water Conservation. I believe Kurapia will revolutionize the landscape industry.
