Meet the harsh challenges of dry, thin caliche-type soils. Native perennial grasses will slowly stabilize vegetative cover. By planting in early spring you take advantage of natural rainfall to sprout the seeds. These natives should reach maturity in three growing seasons. Bronze, red, and golden colored seed-heads during the fall are a breathtaking addition to your native landscape. Special consideration should be given to provide for erosion control, soil organic matter, and seed-to-soil contact. Caliche Mix can be planted in a large geographic range not necessarily limited to areas dominated by calcareous (limestone based) soil types. It was designed as a cost effective solution for those sites that have undergone most extensive disturbances. Generally these include nearly bare, highly compacted and or nutrient poor soils in the western portions of Texas. Exposed subsoil or man-made berms, slopes, dykes, roadways, etc. also qualify. These problems are not just limited to Central and West Texas, they tend to follow us everywhere we go. The species work together to first hold down and then gradually and naturally rebuild the soil. Over time the apex species will become dominant. When it absolutely has to work contractors have come to rely on Caliche Mix to help solve their most challenging landscape restoration problems. Don't Let Land Wash Away! Erosion easily occurs on bare soil exposed to rain or wind. Use of simple processes can enhance your ability to establish native vegetation from seed. Biodegradable erosion control blankets improve seedling establishment by holding newly planted seeds in place and moisture in topsoil.
