Short Grass Prairie Erosion Control Mix (DP4)

Approximate mix weight 102 lb/acre with 108 native seeds/sq. ft.
65.2% Grasses/Sedges/Rushes; 34.8% Forbs


This mix is intended for slopes where rapid soil stabilization is required.  It is appropriate for highly visible landscape settings where height constraints apply and the concern is for strong aesthetic appeal.  The species in this mix will average approximately 2 feet in height, with a maximum height of 4 feet.  This mix contains a high seeding rate of short stature native prairie grasses and forbs along with a heavy component of temporary cover crop.  Use this mix to stabilize side slopes above our Short Stature Wetland Basin Mix (WP6) and/or our Short Stature Bioswale Mix (WP7).
