We have developed a series of planting guides based on the majority of planting objectives including erosion control and soil and water stabilization, beautification and landscape enhancement, creation of biodiversity and wildlife habitat and restoration, bioremediation to correct environmental problems, historical, cultural and ecological restoration, pollinator habitat for honeybees and native pollinators.
Using environmentally friendly, native plants saves time and money by reducing water, chemical, fertilizer and maintenance needs. When selecting seed mixes and individual species for your landscape project be sure your desired outcome is compatible with the site conditions. The seed mixes noted in each planting guide can be customized to your specific needs and those of your site and ecological region.
