Description

King’s Native Grass Mix is a blend of 8 common native grasses for use in wildlife habitat restoration, rangeland restoration, pasture plantings, reclamation seedings, urban landscapes, and golf course roughs. Native grasses provide excellent wildlife habitat and sustainable grazing resources for livestock under natural conditions with little to no inputs.  King’s Native Grass mix included both low-growing turf-type native grasses such as buffalograss and blue grama, as well as the most desirable mid- and tall- native grass species found in savannas, grasslands, prairies, and woodlands throughout Texas and adjacent regions. King’s Native Grass Mix is an excellent choice for recently disturbed soils to restore native grass cover, prevent erosion, and provide lasting cover for years to come.
