Approximate mix weight 60 lb/acre with 157 native seeds/sq. ft.
61.9% Grasses/Sedges/Rushes; 38.1% Forbs


This mix is intended for sites where soil conditions are unstable and hydrologic conditions fluctuate irregularly. The mix is designed for application in sites with a high disturbance regime such as urban wetlands and detention basins that draw down frequently. This mix contains a large percentage of salt-tolerant, native species adapted to irregular water fluctuations associated with urban stormwater runoff. This mix contains a large percentage of ‘non-conservative’ native species and is designed to act as the first wave of vegetation on disturbed sites or where budgetary constraints may apply.
