A Short Prairie for Medium Soils seed mix was installed on the larger part of the acreage. A custom Moist Prairie seed mix was created and added later, in the lowest area, around a manmade pond.

Prairie Run Lake Development, Marshfield, WI - As a consultant to the Prairie Run Group, Prairie Nursery designed and directed the installation of custom seed mixes, comprised of prairie wildflowers and grasses adapted to the clay soils underlying the four acres of uplands and shoreline. In harmony with the landscape, the beautiful homes hug the shores the Lake, designed to inflitrate 100% of the storm water that runs off of the surrounding development. A river of sedges help keep the water crystal clear in an environment that supports blue gills, dragonflies, shorebirds and more.
