A Medical Complex in Tustin wanted to reduce their water use, their mow & blow costs, noise and liability and create a Native California Meadow to enhance other Landscape features around the buildings. Pictured here is our California Native Bentgrass sod which they trim twice a year with a string trimmer but otherwise leave in it's "natural state" creating this flowing texture of grasses which bring coolness and a calming aesthetic when viewed from every window in the complex. Client also reports that there is almost no loitering anymore or garbage and wrappers laying around since they put their meadow in. Client also stated that their employees frequently kick off their shoes and go for short walks in this soft and tufting grass to relieve stress and connect back to Nature.
When a Malibu Homeowner decided to protect his home from runoff coming down the steep slope behind his home he did it with amazing style and creative zest. Pictured here is a handmade stream, waterfalls (27 of them) and multiple collection ponds (4 of them) design that was constructed with forming boards to created the outline of the various areas and then our CC5 Ground Armoring Concrete Cloth draped inside of and over the forming boards to provide a watertight, puncture proof and permanent surface for his various boulders, sand and other "in stream" enhancements. Client and a day laborer completed the whole project in 2 weeks from start to finish. Zero debris down to house since completion.
After the repairs of the road from a HUGE Landslide that took out portions of Ca. Hwy. 1 near Big Sur there was a need to permanently protect the compacted roadside area along the Southbound side of Hwy. 1. Cal Trans used our CC8 Concrete Cloth because of it's flexibility of installation and the speed and ease that it brings to complicated jobs like this. You can see that there are a lot of diversionary and containment features built into this job.
One of our really GR8 and innovative Landscape Designer clients recently sent us pics of a job they had completed in the Del Mar Heights area above Del Mar Racetrack in SD County. Pictured is a Hard Armor cap of our Geotextile matting called Concrete Cloth at the top of this slope and secured into the footings of this Multi Million dollar home so as to completely stop further erosive loss of the soils around those footings. Just below that Hard Armor cap is our amazing KURAPIA groundcover which will eventually reach a rooting depth of over 6'deep and not only locks the soils in place but also acts as a "shear force" reducing blanket to stop water and debris flow from gouging out the slope. On top of the KEYSTONE Wall at bottom left is another section of our Ground Armoring Concrete Cloth serving as a swale to transfer water from the house, the Hard Capped area just behind the house and from the KURAPIA to an offsite drainage system further downslope. Inexpensive Solution!!
People often ask us "Where can I see a sample of one or more of your Native California Grass sods?" One GR8 answer is look at almost any onramp or offramp on the 5, 101, 405 or 8 Freeways and you are likely to see our California Native Mow Free Mix grass or our amazing California Native Biofiltration Mix sod since CalTrans is our LARGEST Client, by sq.footage annually and theyy LOVE the low maintenance and low water needs of each of our 5 varietals. Pictured here at the Northbound offramp to SeaWorld in San Diego is our California Native Mow Free Mix. This picture was taken 3 years after the grass was first installed and it is on the Southbound ramps as well with the total acreage of this area install being around 30,000 sq.ft.
