Kurpia® Utility Groundcover

This highly versatile ground cover sod uses up to 60% Less Water than cool season turf. Low maintenance for areas receiving light traffic, Kurapia blooms from May through October. Its sturdy structure is ideal for a multitude of uses!

Long Term Irrigation Strategy

Once fully established, Kurapia® roots may go as far as 5 to 10 feet below the soil surface, when properly irrigated. Deep irrigation will encourage deep rooting and decrease watering sessions. There is no one irrigation recommended for Kurapia®; water needs will vary by local climate, soil type, time of year, and both type of irrigation system and irrigation methods. In general. An established Kurapia planting will require a minimum of one irrigation a week to hold green color; two irrigations a week may be necessary to hold same green color in excessively hot weather.

Maintenance

Fertilization: time in the Spring for growth and flowering. If desired, 1 time in the Fall can help retain color. 2 lbs. of Nitrogen/1,000 square feet per year.

Mowing: An early mowing during establishment period will encourage more runners, for faster fill in. Does not require mowing if a natural groundcover look is desired. Set mower to remove 1/3 of top growth.
