    What water required for NTB mix?

    1. Mel Asher

      It depends on where you seed it. In the upper valley, little or no irrigation is needed during the spring and fall. But it will go dormant during the summer without regular (bi-weekly) irrigation.

    Is there a mix that will grow well in very sandy soil? We would like something that doesn’t get too high and won’t require mowing (unless we choose to). Thank you!

      The best mix will depend on the amount of natural precipitation you get, along with how much you want to water. At lower elevations in Wenatchee and the Basin, the less than 12″ Precip mix will do great, and has several species adapted to sandy soils, including Indian ricegrass, sand dropseed, and thickspike wheatgrass. This mix will get around knee height tall and would not need to be mowed.
