Custom Seed Mixes

Custom Seed Mixes

Prairie Nursery can design a seed mix customized for any site and budget. Our seed mixes use "Pure Live Seed," tested for germination and purity, for the most successful seed establishment. We combine our extensive knowledge of native plants, and plant communities, to create diverse and healthy ecological landscapes that will last for decades to come.

Start the process by gathering the following information:

  • Size of seeding area
  • Sun exposure: Prairie, Savanna or Woodland
  • Soil moisture: Wet, moist, medium (wet-mesic, mesic, dry mesic) or dry.
  • Desired height

Contact us and one of our consultants will respond to your request.

Considerations that affect seed mixes

Native plants that grow on rich and clay soils tend to be taller than average, usually a minimum of three feet -- and some plants can be much taller. On dry sandy or rocky soils plants tend to naturally grow shorter.

Minimum Area for a Custom Designed Seed Mix: 1,000 square feet.

We also have twenty-four pre-designed mixes that meet most needs and growing conditions.
