EC3 NATIVE SEED MIXES


Standard  •  Diverse  •  Enhanced  •  Wildlife  •  Specialized


Are you a beginner looking to restore a natural plant community or an engineer designing a new storm-water facility, or maybe a corporation looking to add some natural aesthetics to your landscape, in any case our pre-designed mixes should meet your needs.

We offer several pre-designed seed mixes that will thrive in a variety of conditions. We have taken various environmental factors into consideration when we designed our seed mixes, such as soil type, sun exposure, and hydrology. We have designed some of our mixes for practical use and others more for aesthetics.

If you would like us to modify one of our mixes or have a mix custom designed specifically for your project, please give us a call or send us an e-mail and we will have one of our seed mix consultants design a mix to fit your needs.

In helping to eliminate the confusion and frustration of choosing a mix, we have developed a Native Seed Mix Selection Chart (PDF) . This chart will help guide you in the right direction as to which mix is best suited for your situation based on the variables that may exist on your site.

Our enhanced mixes tend to be our most popular mixes for the nature enthusiasts looking to invite the wildlife into their prairie, or a conservation minded organization looking to add natural aesthetics to their corporate campus or landscape. We took our diverse mixes and infused them with double the amount of wildflowers by weight to insure a colorful flora throughout the year. These mixes are ideal choices for landscaping applications or sites that will be highly visible.

Short Grass Prairie MixWILDLIFE NATIVE SEED MIXES

Most wildlife mixes you will find tend to be all clovers and forages (see EC3 Food Plots). Although those mixes will make great food plots, we have taken a different approach. We have created mixes using all natives or developed mixes using a blend of natives in combination with clovers and forages. By taking this approach, we will increase biodiversity in the plantings, provide more than adequate food and shelter for wildlife, and create a sustainable sanctuary for wildlife to thrive in for years to come.
