Custom Services and Bulk Seed


Meadow Installation and Management Services

We have more than a decade of experience in native prairie and meadow establishment. This work ranges from small residential front yard prairies to expansive native pollinator meadows and grasslands that are many acres in size on corporate campuses, parks, and other facilities. This work is informed by graduate-level training in environmental horticulture and years of daily real world practice.
Specific services include:
    • Site feasibility assessments for new meadow developments
    • Meadow installation oversight and project management
    • Direct meadow installation (including fully organic, herbicide-free installation services)
    • Consulting on weed management and ongoing maintenance of established meadows

      Our primary service area is the Seattle/Puget Sound region, although we will entertain project opportunities across the Northwest and beyond. To discuss your installation support and consulting needs, please contact us at: info@northwestmeadowscapes.com 

      Custom Mixes for Specialty Applications and Bulk Seed

      We offer custom mixes! Talk with us about any application such as stormwater management, housing developments, utility corridors, solar farms, green roofs, roadsides, slope stabilization, riparian buffers and more.

      Please note that inventory constantly changes and the availability of some species can change quickly. For custom quotes, please contact us at: info@northwestmeadowscapes.com .

      The list below includes species that we typically have available, or can source with advance lead-time. We are constantly working to expand this list.

      Note that due to the high cost of weighing, labeling, and packaging small volumes, we require a minimum purchase of at least 5 ounces of total seed for special orders, and a minimum order of at least 1 ounce per species.

      Seed Cleaning, Contract Production, and Wild Seed Harvesting

      Our shop is fully equipped to clean seed of a variety of species with air screen cleaners, air column separator, and other seed separation, and threshing tools. We can process raw material from a variety of species, including challenging plants to clean such as milkweed, fireweed, and fruit such as Nootka rose, and more.

      We also welcome contract production and wild seed harvesting inquiries. Our farm has soil conditions suitable for mesic and limited wetland seed production. Our specialty native seed flail brush harvester can be hand-pushed for harvesting high intensity production plots and for seed collection in sensitive natural areas where motorized vehicles are inappropriate. For larger areas, we can harvest seed from an ATV-mounted configuration, as well as hand harvest in natural settings when necessary.
