MMF Stabilization Mix

MMF seed mixes

Our nursery’s Stabilization seed mix is designed for quick germination and erosion control. It contains native grasses that have particularly strong fibrous roots which can grow to depths over six feet. It is appropriate for sites that are full sun to part shade, with low water availability. The species in this mix range from one to five feet tall. The fescue species in this mix (Festuca ovina), while not native, is not an invasive fescue and will not compete with the native grasses for establishment. It is included due to its rapid germination rate but will disappear after a couple of growing seasons.  We recommend 20-25 pounds per acre, and we sell it by the pound.
