The mixes in this category provide a long term solution to areas that are prone to erosion or there is a need for slope stabilization. Some of the grasses in these mixes provide relatively quick growth for erosion control, while the native perennial species offer soil stabilization with deep root systems.

Adding native wildflowers to some of these mixes has the benefit of pollinator habitat on slopes or areas prone to erosion.

Our Freedom Lawn mixes and Flowering Lawn Mix are a low maintenance turf replacement in areas that may be difficult to mow because of a slope.

Econo Native Tall Meadow
Looking for native tall grasses and wildflowers, but want to maximize your dollar? This mix is great for areas that don't need to be mowed, but can benefit pollinators.
Econo Native Short Meadow
On a budget and still want to plant native? This mix has a higher grass ratio, but still provides color and a foraging place for pollinators with native wildflowers.
Pond Edge Mix
Pond edges can lack plant diversity and be prone to erosion. Once established, this mix provides foraging for native bees, helps with soil stabilization and creates interest with beautiful blooms summer through early fall.
Slope Pollinator Mix
Erosion concerns on moderate slopes can be eased with our Slope Pollinator Mix. Create pollinator habitat with a mix of grasses and wildflowers that provide a long term solution to soil stabilization.
