MNL Stormwater Basin Mix

From: $45.00

Designed for the use in stormwater and retention basin pond edges

The MNL Stormwater Basin Mix is designed for the use in stormwater and retention basin pond edges. This mix will grow to a height of 3 to 6 feet. Native species that are found in this mix will grow well in mesic to wet soils.

Seed mixes in our 500, 1,000, 5,000, and 1/4 acre package sizes come with native grasses, wildflowers, cover crop, and a filler (for easier spreading) all pre-mixed. Orders in 1/2 acre or 1 acre+ sizes come with grasses, wildflowers, and cover crop bagged separately for drill seeding or broadcast seeding.

Species of cover crop seed will depend on the time of year the product is ordered – if you order ahead and have a delayed planting time in mind, please indicate planting season (spring, summer, fall, or winter) in a note at check out.
