Stream Restoration

Photo: Swida amomum (Silky dogwood)

Mellow Marsh Farm propagates native plant material for stream restoration projects. We focus on native riparian plants, particularly the hard-to-find species not available from conventional nurseries.

Our plants are in a variety of container sizes (along with bare root and live stakes) that comply with regulatory specifications. Our staff has experience with stream restoration projects and we can provide advice, availability lists, or information on contract growing.
