Spec Sheet:


The New England Logging Road Seed Mix was originally designed for restoring Maine logging roads, but has application on other types of restoration sites. Provides native plant cover in low fertility and compacted soils. Always apply on clean bare soil. The mix may be applied by hydro-seeding, by mechanical spreader, or on small sites it can be spread by hand. Lightly rake, or roll to ensure proper seed to soil contact. Best results are obtained with a Spring or late Summer seeding. Late Spring and early Summer seeding will benefit from a light mulching of weed free straw to conserve moisture. If conditions are drier than usual, watering may be required. Late Fall and Winter dormant seeding require an increase in the seeding rate. Fertilization is not required unless the soils are particularly infertile. Preparation of a clean weed free soil surface is necessary for optimal results.
