Septic Mound Mix/ 500 sq ft
Out of stock
Prairie Moon created this Septic Safe seed mix that has all the qualities to make that crappy site into something beautiful and beneficial. These species are rugged; they will thrive in the moisture-sucking gravel above tanks and leach fields, as well as withstand the additional heat emitted from below. Once established, this combination of plants averages 2 to 3 feet in height. The colorful flowers throughout the growing season will provide year-long interest and support local pollinators like butterflies, bees, and birds.
Native plants create tight-knit communities with entwined root systems that will prevent soil erosion while absorbing excess moisture and nutrients: Nature’s original filtration devices. These plants perform well in full or partial sun and prefer to keep their roots dry; this means that, although some roots dig deep, they will not seek out the piping underground or clog up the works.
Be sure to limit the amount of soil, mulch, and additives to your septic site. Avoid tilling and disturbances that may cause compaction to your site.
Seed packs must be ordered by April 1st.
