Why Buy Nature’s Seed?
There have never been so many choices when buying seed than there are today. You can go to any big-box store and buy a cheap bag of seed at the same place you buy your socks. You can visit a home improvement store and hope the salesperson knows what they’re talking about. You can take your chances by clicking on the first seed company that shows up on an internet search. But how do you know you’re getting the best quality? Not all seed is the same, as too many landowners discover the hard way. By understanding the Nature’s Seed advantage, you can be confident you’re getting the best value for your dollar.
For over 20 years, Nature’s Seed has been helping folks with their seeding projects throughout North America. From homeowners trying to establish their first lawn to large-scale reclamation projects covering tens of thousands of acres, you might say we’ve been around the block a few times. Our experts come from a range of backgrounds including agronomy, agriculture, turfgrass science, rangeland management, reclamation, and ecology. Many of our experts also hold advanced degrees relating to these subjects. Each seed blend we stock has been custom designed by our experts, and has undergone stringent purity and germination standards. Don’t have a clue where to start? Need some help on your seeding project? Don’t hesitate to contact us for expert advice and recommendations.
We take pride in the purity of our seed. Unlike some other brands that can contain up to 40 percent inert matter and filler species, our seed is held to the highest standards and contains no added inert matter or fillers. Our quality controls include custom cleaning followed by purity and viability (germination) testing performed by independent seed laboratories.
The Nature's Seed ProcessThere are many factors that go into our seed selecting process. Our experts stay up-to-date on all the latest cultivars and varieties. For our lawn blends, we only use grass varieties that have been top-rated by the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP). NTEP is perhaps the most important and well-known turfgrass research organization in the world. Each year NTEP evaluates hundreds of turfgrass cultivars based on factors such as color, disease and pest resistance, density, traffic tolerance, cold hardiness, drought and heat resistance and overall quality. They share their findings in an annual report, and we use this information to determine which cultivars go into our blends. For our wildflower and pasture blends, we analyze all available varieties and select the most appropriate types for your specific needs. Our experts do all the research for you.
Pound for Pound
Purchase Made EasyWe package all our seed by the Pure Live Seed (PLS) pound. This means that you are guaranteed to get the proper amount of seed for your project. For example, if our seed is tested to germinate at 80%, we will send you 1.25 lbs. of seed instead of simply the 1 lb. you ordered. This ensures you will receive a full pound of seed that is tested to germinate. Every price, weight and coverage area on our website is based on PLS. We also take the guesswork out of figuring out how much seed to buy. All of our seed blends are sold by the coverage area (square foot or acres), and are based on seeding rates that are tried-and-true. There’s no need for a calculator when shopping with Nature's Seed.
