Ditchbank, Erosion Control, Beneficial Habitat Mix
Excellent, long-lasting evergreen turf and clover mix was developed for use on farm roadways, ditchbanks and other areas where soil and water erosion, dust, traction, beneficial insect habitat and durability are important.
DOG FRIENDLY LAWN TURF This durable mix is a good bet for areas where dogs run and play. (Click "reviews" above to check out the customer review about this!)
Plant spring through fall in any area that can be irrigated during germination and dry months.
This mix forms a dense, low-growing (8"-12) sod that can tolerate frequent foot and equipment traffic once established, even tolerating wet soil traffic.
Prevents compaction and erosion problems and requires only occasional (1-3 times per year) mowing. The clovers attract and feed many beneficial insects and the grasses form a dense, tough turf.
The turf type fescues in this mix are naturally high in endophytes, which helps to maximize pest resistance. However, high endophyte seed should not be used for animal pasture, as it can be toxic to livestock, including horses.
Broadcast seed and cover shallowly at 4-6 lb/1,000 sq ft.
