Use this mix in larger areas or smaller, more confined areas. This mixture is also very aesthetically pleasing with excellent color variation from the wildflowers as well as the beautiful mature texture and colors of the native grasses and “grass-like” species. Use this mixture in areas of excessive water run-off or retention basins sites for natural water infiltration.
