Peaceful Valley Roadway Mix - Nitrocoated Seed (lb)

Peaceful Valley Roadway Mix - Nitrocoated Seed (lb)

Good Mix for Erosion Control

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.

This mix forms a dense, low-growing 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.

Mix contains seed which produces grass that will make a naturally occurring product, endophyte. Endophyte is toxic to livestock or horses, therefore, seed should not be used for pastures.

  • Application Rate: Broadcast seed and cover shallowly at 1-2 lb/1,000 sq ft. or 40-50 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: None needed, is nitrocoated
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 8 -12"
  • Uses: Ditchbank, erosion control, beneficial habitat
  • Facts to Note: This durable mix is a good bet for areas where dogs run and play. Plant spring through fall in any area that can be irrigated during germination and dry months.

Contains: Dwarf Turf-Type Fescue, Tough Turf-Type Fescue, White Clover, OMRI-listed coated Strawberry Clover, Kentucky Bluegrass

Like it so far

Coming up in the area that always get runoff and tons of weeds! Like it so far. I'm also going to blend it with a grass mix for our small orchard.

Quick and strong germination; looks healthy

Seeds germinated well and the seedlings look healthy. Not sure if they can survive the deathly clay mud backyard of my rental, but they did germinate. Hoping for the best. Peaceful Valley cover crop seeds have been great—I’ve tried many. Daikon cover crop seed is awesome. Can’t go wrong with that.

amazing for use with problem soil

We live on the tailings of an old copper mine and thought we would never have any groundcover let alone a lawn! Roadway mix mix gave us a beautiful green area popular with our chickens, the local deer, wild turkeys and birds.
