Native Species Specifications

Specifications are available for Michigan and Midwest native seed mixes. Our mixes are based on “Natural Community Types” as determined by Michigan Natural Features Inventory.

Custom mixes can be developed specifically for your project based on a number of criteria.

Installation and establishment specifications can be developed for your plans with the BMP (best management practice) for each mix type and site location.

Site specific native seed and plant specifications are developed for a naturally successful project. The key is the right plant community for the right place, which will insure a sustainable design. Have a Native Establishment Plan developed for your native planting project to insure a successful establishment. See the website for Nativescape mix specifications already to use in your next project. Nativescape has developed seeding recommendations and specifications for storm water basins, drain right-of-ways, stream bank stabilizations, riparian buffer strips, uplands, woodlands and wetlands. The areas are first researched to determine the best site specific native plant community. Specific planting instructions, establishment recommendations, and management plans are offered to insure a successful planting. As part of many of these projects Nativescape has done native plant layout and seeding design to stabilize land, prevent erosion, and increase infiltration.
