For several years, Sylva Native Nursery & Seed Company has strived to provide native warm season grass mixtures for application in the land reclamation and ecosystem restoration field. These trademarked mixtures are formulated for use in wetlands and stormwater basins (Wet Mix®), dry exposed shorelines and bluffs (Shore Mix®), upland or riparian reforestation sites (Field and Forest Mix®), or to create fields of wildflowers (Meadow Mix®).
Each mixture is available in several variations, formulated specifically for differing soil types including sandy soils, clay loam, silt loam, and "generic unknown soil type." Success of the seeding and strength of the stand is greatly improved by correlating the appropriate formulation to the specific soil on your site.
Wholesale price of each mixture starts at $15 per pound, and fluctuates based on quantity ordered and market conditions.
Consulting Services are available for customization of specifications to site conditions and expected outcome. Please feel free to inquire.
As with all warm season grasses, germination
of restoration seed mixes is highly dependent on good seed-soil contact.
This is best accomplished through site preparation by discing or other
harrowing, and drilling using pasture or prairie grass calibration.
