Annual Cover Crop

We recommend an annual cover crop, especially for steep slope and bare soil sites. A cover crop also helps to suppress weed growth the first year during the slower establishment period of most perennials.

If you have large acreage, we suggest finding cover crop locally as they are commonly available and are heavy, adding substantially to your shipping cost with us.
