Description

Specifically designed to provide erosion and sediment control and color on low-fertility sites. After the establishment year, this meadow mix may be mowed annually. This would preferably be in the spring prior to onset of new growth, but it may be after the meadow ceases blooming in the fall. Mix formulations are subject to change without notice depending on the availability of existing and new products. While the formula may change, the guiding philosophy and function of the mix will not.
