A custom blend of native and adaptive vegetation, NaturesTurf consists of a custom blend of native and adaptive vegetation grown within 1” of a soilless growing media. NaturesTurf products are grown outdoors at our Strathmore, Alberta farm on a fully biodegradable erosion control blanket composed of coconut husk fibers with jute netting.
NaturesTurf is an ideal solution for areas which are difficult to vegetate with conventional methods and where specific or native varieties are required. Potential applications include; storm pond perimeters, dry ponds, wetlands, parks trail reclamation, areas with erosion control challenges and sensitive areas requiring native plantings only. NaturesTurf gives immediate vegetation and erosion control once installed.
