NATIVE GRASS MIX
Grass Seed Mix
Native Grass seed is specifically designed for those consumers who want a completely drought-tolerant, disease-free lawn after establishment. This mixture may also be used for pasture, range, and soil stabilization on the south-facing slopes in altitudes up to 6,000 feet. Endophyte free grasses provide good grazing. Additionally, animals would have a hard time grubbing these grasses out because of the low crown heights. Recommended sowing times: May, June, and early July. This mixture will be slow to germinate and must be kept moist until the seeded area is completely established. These grasses are low growing, blue-green to medium green in color, with a fine leaf texture but coarse feeling to bare feet. Buffalograss and Native Blue Gramas are particularly slow-growing, which eliminates the need for weekly mowing. Not recommended for shaded areas.
KEY FEATURES & CARE
The Native grass seed prefers to be in full sun. Which is perfect for those 300 days of sun here in Colorado.
This mixture will be slow to germinate and must be kept moist until the seeded area is completely established. Once established, the lawn needs watering about once per week.
This grass seed likes to be planted in a prepare seed bed with amended soil. Remove any rocks or clumps of soil. Great for most Colorado soils but if you need to amend your soil ask a City Floral expert for help choosing the right soils for your yard.
Fertilizing your lawn at least 4 times throughout the year. The best times are in early spring, early summer, mid-to-late summer, and fall. Each time requires a different type of fertilizer, be sure to ask a City Floral expert for help determining which fertilizer to use.
