Want a couple horses with that sod? Or a lion or two?
As the sod business must have really suffered during our period of drought and severe water restrictions, exploring a different business model could keep you afloat in this down economy. This place may still sell sod - although I didn't see any signs of it - but statues big and small are everywhere. Small naked women and tiny St. Francis share space with fountains, flower pots, mailboxes, several lions and full-size gold horses, rearing up and ready to greet friends and family at the end of your driveway. If you think that might just be a bit much for the neighborhood, stick with two of the 5-foot tall golden lions...and pretend you're the New York Public Library.
