The addition of annual rye seed to your No Mow Lawn seed mix provides the rapid soil stability needed for seeding steep slopes and erosion-prone sites. The Annual Rye Nurse Crop blend should only be used where winter temperatures will be cold enough to kill off the annual rye. If you are using an erosion blanket, annual rye is not required.
When planting on slopes in the fall, be sure to plant your seed no later than September 15th, to ensure sufficient growth of the nurse crop to hold the soil.
In northern regions, zone 2-4, annual rye will usually winter-kill (except in milder winters). In southern regions, zone 5 and warmer, using annual rye is not recommended due to its persistance and likely frequent mowing.
