The grass seed mixes below are suggested for this area to give your land a good variety of grasses that help to contain erosion.

Grasses in many species other than those listed here are also available.  If you have a specific seed mix for your acreage, we can get a price for you and order it for the acreage needed to be seeded.  We also rent a Native Grass Seed Drill. Call us at 303 218-2622 or e-mail us for more information.

Nice To Know

  • The Native Mix takes 2 to 3 growing seasons to establish, but it is more cold and drought tolerant when established.
  • The Introduced Mix establishes itself in 1 to 2 growing seasons, however, it is not as cold or drough tolerant as the native mix.
  • The best times to plant Seed is between November 1st after the first frost through May 1st.  (If it is a wet spring, you can plant up to May 15th)
  • Broadcast or Drill?  By using a seed drill to plant your seed, you only need half of the seed rate that you would use for broadcasting seed.  When drill seeding, the planting is more successful and the cost is about half.
