Approximate mix weight 95 lb/acre with 65 native seeds/sq. ft.
31.7% Grasses/Sedges/Rushes; 68.3% Forbs


This mix is intended for sites where a low growing plant community is desired. The species in this mix will grow to an average height of approximately 2′ and a maximum height of 4′. This mix is intended for sites where soil conditions are unstable and hydrologic conditions fluctuate irregularly experiencing saturated soil during storm events. This mix is appropriate for highly visible landscape settings where height constraints apply and the concern is for strong aesthetic appeal. Use our Short Grass Prairie Erosion Control Mix (DP4) for the side slopes around the swale.
