We have put together this special blend to fill the need for soil stabilization and protection on sites with sandy soils that are susceptible to wind and water erosion. Included are both warm and cool-season native grasses that perform in sandy soils. These grasses collect and hold blowing sediment and snow which is necessary for them to survive in dryer soil profiles with little organic matter. We have included two options. One is a mid height blend (up to 3 ft) and the other includes three taller grasses (up to 5 ft). Plant these mixes in spring through early summer. Starter fertilizer and irrigation (if available) will help speed germination and establishment.
