Native seed, much like other agriculture products, is a commodity and by definition , is subject to fluctuations in price & availability. The price of native seed can change depending on season, demand, weather, & other ecological factors.
Additionally, some mixes change from time to time and a species or two is substituted into the mix without changing the overall purpose of the specific mix. Substiatuions can be due to season, availability, price, or other circumstances.
It's important to note if you're interested in purchasing seed, please contact us right away and we can secure both your species for your mix and lock in your price.
Pure Air Natives has over 300 species of seeds and plants available consisting of over 500 individual lots in our warehouse and thousands of live plants/plugs growing in our greenhouses. It's impossible for us to list every possible combination of seed mixes we can come up with. If your desired seed mix or specific species is not listed below, contact us so we can create the custom mix you need.
These seed mixes will qualify for the different cost-share programs such as EQIP, CSP, & CRP. Typically these mixes will range from 20 - 40 seeds per square foot.
We have Monarch 20, 30, & 40 species, with or without grasses as well. Monarch mixes are designed to create habitat for the dwindling populations of monarch butterflies.
We can make any blend of pollinator mix to meet cost-share requirements but often we see Pollinator 14 and 20 species. These pollinator habitat mixes not only provide food, but also shelter in the winter months.
The CP42 Pollinator Habitat Establishment practice is a conservation reserve program (CRP) practice to create environments where pollinators can thrive year round.
CP4D Permanent Wildlife Habitat is a conservation reserve program (CRP) practice established to provide cover, nesting, & food for all kinds of animal species.
CP21 Grass Filter Strips protect water quality by acting as a natural filter intercepting contaminants before the enter the water systems.
CP23A Wetland Restoration on floodplains improves water quality and creates critical habitat for wetland species.
CP2 Native Grass, Forb, and Legume Establishment was designed as an effective means to control erosion, improve water quality and create habitat for grassland and game bird species.
CP33 Upland Bird Habitat Buffer is a conservation reserve program (CRP) practice to provide critical cover, nesting and food resources for targeted upland species.
The 512 Biomass/Forage program is designed to create vegetation for grazing and browsing animals. The more the better!
For landowners not in a cost-share program, we can create custom mixes specific to your goals and budget. Typically these mixes will range from 15 - 45 seeds per square foot.
Deer are 'edge' creatures. Soften the transition from woods to fields to provide security and ultimately increase daylight activity.
Adding diversity to Edge Feathering will increase browse activity in those areas.
Nesting cover provides shelter and security for ground nesting birds to protect nests/eggs from nest predators.
A blend of native grasses provides excellent grazing benefits for cattle, including summer-time weight gains, upwards of 2lbs per day!
Providing native wildflowers for pollinators is an excellent way to increase song bird populations and small animal activity on your land.
Converting fescue pasture fields to beneficial native grasses and wildflowers will increase wildlife activity, is more ascetically pleasing, increases property value, and supports clean water runoff.
Bedding areas are typically the #1 limiting resource on hunting properties. Providing bedding and cover areas adds long term security so deer stay on your land longer.
This seed mix puts the food on the ground where wildlife can use it. Provides native natural browse for all species of wildlife and lateral cover to hide from predators.
This native seed mix is designed to provide native diversity throughout establishment phase. Providing annual color and blooms from early spring through late fall.
A blend of native tall native grasses that will stand 6 foot tall and beyond. Can be used to screen access trails, food plots, ponds, gardens, driveways, or use as a native 'green fence' from the neighbors.
Tallgrass prairies are things of legend. They produce massive amounts of biomass, provide deep root systems to promote healthy soils, and are wildlife sanctuaries.
Shortgrass prairies are excellent for game birds and wildlife browsing areas. They provide nature cover for young animals while more mature animals can still scan the area for predators while feeding.
For businesses, contractors, architects, general managers, project managers, superintendents, etc; this category of seed mixes is comprised of typical mixes for these industries. The main difference being these mixes have high 'seeds per square foot numbers' to ensure a full & showy native seed planting. This typically ranges from 50 - 100 seeds per square foot, which all but eliminates weed competition and creates a very colorful bloom sequence from spring through fall.
This mix is designed to maintain line of sight to preserve views of the surrounding areas while still having a native prairie.
Our deer tolerant mixes are just that. Native seed mixes that won't be browsed and eaten to the ground by deer. But it does not mean they won't still be there.
Diversity is key to full & showy prairies. If you want the magazine cover photo, high diversity prairies are the ticket.
Native plant root systems hold soil together better than anything else. If you want to keep the stream banks where they're supposed to be, native plants are the answer.
Natural savanna areas are some of the most sought after settings around. The park-like feel created by mature trees mixes with the native wildflowers is reminiscent of simpler times.
Create a natural area in the Right of Way to maintain soil integrity, slow or stop water runoff and create pollinator habitat.
Use native plants to regulate water runoff and flow. Their deep root systems allow more water infiltration into the soil and slows actual runoff.
Lowlands and wetlands can be especially tricky to mange with introduced species. But some native plants are genetically disposed to thrive in wet conditions.
With habitat loss comes soil erosion which can be evident on new construction sites. Planting native grasses and wildflowers can prevent further soil loss and stabilize the area.
