To reduce sediment flowing into the water, bare earth is supposed to have something growing on it. On our private road, there's been a lot of disturbance due to a development going in, which means lots of bare earth. The development has been putting grass seeds on the bare earth. But, since it's a private road and I have an easement on it, I'd like to add some native diversity.
Anyone have any ideas on a wildflower/pollinator/native grass/native plantseed mix that is affordable?
The hard thing with native seed mixes, is that I've heard that they are not usually actually filled with natives. I want mine to be natives, as the road boarders woodland, some of which is protected wetlands, and I don't want anyone mad that I introduced invasive... and so that no one would raise any eyebrows about any of the plants, because they could just as easily be planted by nature as by me.
Here are some of the seed mixes that I found. Is flax native?!
