Steep Slopes and Disturbed Sites

These sites have soils of variable types and conditions.

Site Preparation: Remove existing vegetation. Weeds not addressed before establishment will be difficult to remove later.

Habitat: Consists of various soils usually consisting of exposed clay, sand and rock outcroppings.

Fertility: These sites are generally low in fertility; therefore, checking beforehand is a good idea. If you do have low fertility, you can add topsoil or organic matter (compost) to the area. Be sure to also check your ph and add lime or fertilizer as needed. If this area is a weedy area beforehand, then we do not recommend you fertilize if possible.

Seeding Method: Hand seed, broadcast, hydro-seed, or drill seed. Once the seed has been broadcast, dragging with a light harrow to cover the seed or mulching with straw is a good idea to prevent as much washing out as possible. With adequate temperature and moisture your seed should germinate within 2-3 weeks which will stabilize the area.

General Maintenance - Observation of your area for desired growth vs. weeds is important in the future maintenance. Remove any weeds you see before they go to seed. Most of the competition the first year will be annual weeds if any. On your second-year monitor for perennial weeds and remove as necessary.
