Our Cabin Seed mix was designed for mountain cabin sites, road cuts or other areas of disturbance in the mountains of the Intermountain West. It performs best at altitude 7,000′ and above. It will grow in most areas with 16 inches of annual precipitation.

Consider our Cabin Seed mix for seeding the following applications:

  • Road Cuts
  • Construction Disturbance
  • Septic System Lines
  • Water and Utility Lines
  • Power Lines
  • Water Wells
  • Foundation Disturbance
  • Clearing Wooded Areas

Cabin Seed Mix is best planted in late fall (Spetember-October) when seed will lay dormant until spring. Cabin mix may also be seeded in early spring to take advantage of spring moisture.

Seed should be planted no deeper than 1/4″. Broadcasting is the most common form of seed application and soil should be scarified with a harrow, rake or some other form of light disturbance.

    I thought I would try Cabin Seed at my Cabin on Kolob Mountain (September 8, 2017) and after 2 weeks I have grass popping up every where! Very excited for next Spring to see my Mountain lawn. I’m going to try the Wildflower mix next.
