Douglas County Native Permanent Seed Mix, 11.5 LBS

$159.30

Douglas County Permanent Mix is a native seed mix for pastures and general seeding purposes.  This mix reseeds itself when given the chance to grow to maturity and produce seed.  Feel free to leave this grass tall all year as birds and mammals find habitat and forage in these beautiful tall grasses.  Long grass also holds moisture in the soil better than cut grass. Once established this grass will not require watering beyond natural rain and snow.
