WET MEADOW & WETLAND SITES have soils made up of clay and high organic matter, with high water tables or impervious layers that prevent drainage. They are wet most of the time. Examples of WET MEADOW SITES: • Roadside ditches • Retention basins that catch run-off water • Pond areas • Wetland edges Examples of WETLAND SITES: • Newly created wetlands and wetland restoration sites • Retention basins with wetland functions • Flood plains, pond edges, and open water • Wet bioremediation sites

Site Preparation: Remove existing vegetation. If you need to use an herbicide, be sure to have a licensed technician do the spraying with an approved herbicide for your area. The soil is often too wet to rototill. Newly constructed wetlands, retention basins, and wet construction sites should be seeded as soon after construction as possible.

Habitat: Wetland sites, by necessity, must have wet soil or saturated soil to standing water, a high-water table, and vary from partial shade to full sun.

Fertility: Due to the potential for water contamination, the use of lime or fertilizer in wetlands is not recommended. We do recommend the addition of organic materials when topsoil has been depleted or removed. Check your soil pH and select species adapted to that ph.

Seeding Method: Hand seed, broadcast, hydro- seed, or drill seed when the water table is down. It is not practical to seed any wetland where the water is more than 2" deep or where severe flooding is likely to occur before germination. The same caution applies to mulching. Often, natural seed banks (seeds in wetland soil) will establish part of the vegetation cover.

General Maintenance Very little can be done the first year. NOTE: Wetland plants can often tolerate drier conditions than their indicator status.
