Using high quality and environmentally sustainable native grass seed improves the physical, biological and chemical composition of the soil. This is important as we are faced with needing to revitalize our soil to continue producing for a growing population, with a decreasing agricultural land availalblity.

The nutrients found in soil are vital for creating a sustainable system of farming. From planting to production to harvest, each phase is critical and no more important than the other. Each stage must be carried out properly and must be treated as a supportive contingency plan in moving on to the next stage of the cycle. When it comes to planting, using Bamert grass seed and native plants can reduce the environmental impact you produce as these high quality seeds are viable and have high yielding potential.

Other characteristics of our native grass seed that make them distinct and superior from the rest are their color, the fullness or plumpness of each seed, and how whole each seed is. None of them are broken or damaged and we ensure every seed variety’s quality is industry standard. The 90% of the grass seeds we provide are produced in our own farms so you can be assured of quality products.

Seed cleanliness, free from weeds and other inert materials such as stones also make them high quality. Seed purity, meaning that seeds are genetically pure and free from admixtures, while containing the right amount of moisture, is also a characteristic that can help lessen the need for replanting, as well as ensure more uniformity, and early growth of the seeds and increased resistance to insects and plant-diseases.

To obtain high quality native grass seed, call us at Bamert Seed Company, where our offerings of over 200 species of native grass, forbs and legumes have been selected from the regional USDA Plant Material Centers for their soil and climate adaptation characteristics. We offer Blue Grama, Buffalograss, Big Bluestem, and many more. Our trained staff will be happy to accommodate you and answer your inquiries regarding our services and products.

You can also visit our Plant Library to find out more about our different blends, grass species, forbs species, and woody species.

Finding the right plants for your desert landscaping needs can be tedious. Some people would think that living in places with arid climate gives limited selection of plants, and that most are colorless and dull. Blue Grama grass can be the perfect plant for your lawn, whether it is for a sprawl of land on your backyard or simply an ornamental plant amidst your desert landscape design. This type of grass, given its shallow stems and attractive seed heads, will definitely give your garden a beautiful twist.

Mostly known as one of the best forage grass types, Blue Grama grass (Bouteloua gracilis) is a plant that thrives in areas that are dry and prone to droughts. Using Blue Grama grass allows your desert landscape design to be reminiscent of open plains that will give your garden a wider and bigger look with a softer texture given that there will only be a few plants in it. Blue Grama grass is versatile and can survive even in sand or clay foundations. It does not require excessive irrigation and fertilization, thus promoting water conservation and fewer expenses on fertilizer and water bills.

In desert landscaping, succulents are the most famous kind of plant when it comes to ornamental use as it gives a bit of color and geometrical beauty to the garden. But for those looking for a more minimalistic desert landscape design, including the Blue Grama grass seed into your growing desert landscape provides just that. It also allows for a very low-maintenance garden that can firmly hold on to soil, stopping it from being blown away by winds. Blue Grama is best planted together with Buffalograss or wildflowers.

Keep in mind that different plants have different care and maintenance requirements. Given that Blue Grama is a low maintenance grass type, all you need to do is keep it at around 1.5 to 3 inches high for your lawn. If left unmowed, your Blue Grama can grow to around 10 to 15 inches. Besides this, you only need to look out for weed invasion, especially if you over-irrigate or over-fertilize your stand. In such cases, preemergent herbicides made for Buffalograss will work to clean your turf. Avoid phenoxy-based herbicides as these can harm Blue Grama.

To use Blue Grama grass as an ornamental plant, it can be placed and scattered around your desert landscape to give soft accents here and there to contrast the sharp and geometrical edges of the domineering succulents around your garden.

Imagine yourself at the top of a knoll of green grass overlooking the most breath taking view you have ever seen. To one side you have the pavilion where the lucky couple will be married and to the other the full lush vines permeating the air with their delicious aroma. The warm sun at your back illuminating the lush green glow of the Buffalograss at your feet; the aromatic smell of the vines enhanced by the suns warmth; every little detail a tantalizing tickle to your senses. It’s the perfect setting for that perfect day. It’s the majestic feeling that one would get at Wales Manor Vineyard.

Bamert Seed Company has had the privilege to work with the esteemed vineyard in their revegetation projects of lawns and between vine rows. Topgun Buffalograss was specifically chosen for this project because of its lush green apperance, drought tolerance, and low maintenance requirements. Topgun Buffalograss provided Wales Manor an aesthetic appeal and turf grass for their needs; whether it be an outdoor wine tasting, a wedding, or a concert. Since Topgun Buffalograss is one of the shortest growing Buffalograss, they were able to use it between the vine rows as it would not interfere with growth; but rather provide ground cover to help reduce soil erosion.
