Custom Grass Seed Mixed to Meet Your Soil Conditions

Pollinator Blends

Seeding a solar farm with the right grass seed is critically important. The right mix ensures turf establishment and erosion control during construction and reduced maintenance and improved ecological habitats after construction. We have a proven track record of successfully supplying custom blended grass seed mixtures to utility-scale solar farms in Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina.

Wetland Mixes

Our Wetland Seed Mix is blended specifically for establishing healthy and consistent vegetation in wetlands. This seed mixture is recommended for stream restorations, RPAs and wetlands. We have a proprietary Wetland Seed Mix but can also custom blend mixes for your environmentally sensitive sites.

Native Mixes

A Native Mix is a custom blend of native grasses that are naturally occurring at a specific location. Native Mixes are often specified for environmentally sensitive areas like retention ponds, wetlands and buffers. Soil tests and ecological reports can reveal what varieties should be included in a custom Native Mix blend.
