MNL Upland Dry Prairie Mix

Prairie seed mix designed for dry and well drained soils–Available in different height mixes!
Clear

Designed for dry, well-drained sites or sandy soils.  We have designed a short grass and mixed height option, please note both options in the drop down menu and check out the mix composition in the PDF’s below. Our shortgrass option reaches a height of 2-3 feet, the mixed height grass option will range from 2-5 feet. Each seed mix order will ship with an appropriate amount of cover crop seed for the project area – species of cover crop seed will depend on the time of year the product is ordered (if you have a delayed planting time in mind, please indicate that in a note at check out).
