Riparian Buffer Mix



It has been proven that waterways with a strip of protective vegetation alongside them have increased water quality and numerous ecological benefits.  Pinelands Nursery’s Riparian Buffer Mix is a diverse mix of native forbs and grasses that can aid in the stabilization of stream banks and decrease erosion.  Creating a riparian buffer also helps to lessen the occurrence and strength of flooding and inhibit sedimentation of waterways while simultaneously supporting a wide variety of pollinators and wildlife.  Great for sites with steep slopes, shaded edges, boggy areas, and occasional running water.
