Any of these seeding rates are appropriate for a prairie reconstruction, but higher wildflower rates will result in a much more colorful planting.

Wildflower and grass mixes are not pre-blended. They are individually mixed at the time of order to ensure that the proper amount of each species is included in the mix and to allow for modifications based on individual preferences and site requirements.  Mixes can be custom designed for your project at no additional charge.  If you would like help in planning your project, please feel free to contact us.
