Midwestern Native Seed Mixes

Heartland Restoration Services specializes in producing native seed mixes for specific landscape and restoration projects from high quality, ICIA certified, PLS tested, local genotype seed. Heartland’s seed mixes are designed based upon current research and community associations observed in undisturbed areas of northern Indiana. Each of the seed mixes is designed for application in a specific environment and contain both a permanent component (native grasses, sedges, rushes, and forbs) of the desired plant community, and a temporary cover crop of non-native, short-lived grasses. The number of temporary grass species in the seed mix will vary depending on the initial erosion control needed for the site’s conditions. Whether your intent is to attract wildlife, create a personal sanctuary, or develop a natural alternative to traditional landscaping or erosion and sediment control, we can provide a mix of native plant species to meet your needs.

When placing your orders, please remember the following:

1. Heartland’s seed mixes are designed based upon Pure Live Seed (PLS) per square foot, not by weight, as seed weight is highly variable.

2. Heartland’s seed mixes are blended at the time of order to allow for changes in seasonal variability.

3. Species substitutions may be made within mixes to maintain the integrity of the mix with the site-specific conditions in mind.

4. We will work with you to develop a custom seed mix that meets your specific landscape and restoration needs.
