Seed it alone to create a stunning field of green, gold, bronze and brown, use it for privacy or use to create your own custom mix augmented with your choice of native wildflowers.

Installing pollinator friendly native grasses and fescues in solar farms and fields helps with soil erosion, creates habitat in an area once barren and reduces the need for endless mowing.

This Solar Field Grass Mix typically take 2 to 3 growing seasons to establish and reaches heights of 1 to 3 feet. It can be augmented with wildflowers as well. We recommend our Quick Growing Wildflowers Mix for color and additional resources for pollinators.
