Mountain Cabin & Contractor Mix

Mountain Cabin & Contractor Mix was originally designed for a construction company who used it to seed over construction disturbance at a mountain group camping and recreation site. It was used to reclaim the road cuts, building foundations, utility trenches and other disturbed areas. There were overages in the mix and it was offer as a discount to our customers in an email promoition.

The response to our promotion was humbling and overwhelmingly successful! We sold every pound in inventory in less than 2 hours. We realize that some customer may not have been able to take advantage of the deal. We love a great deal as much an anyone, and hate to miss out on golden opportunities. So, we’ve created this new and updated Mountain Cabin and Contract mix for anyone who missed out of the first deal.

The new mix contains the following blend of mountain grasses and wildflowers adapted from 4,000 – 8,000 feet will work well for any disturbed site. It is adapted for and proven to be effective in any of the scenarios mentioned above. It is a well rounded blend of grasses and flowers and will be very effective at erosion control, ground cover and showy displays of flowers.
