Stream Restoration

Mellow Marsh Farm specializes in propagating plant material for large Stream Restoration projects. We are unique in providing all types of plant material for Stream Restoration.

Bare Root seedlings: we focus on native riparian trees and shrubs, particularly the hard to find species not available from conventional nurseries. Our seedlings are polymer-dipped and stored in a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment to ensure quality.

Container Trees and Shrubs: we have over 100 species of native trees and shrubs in a variety of container sizes – including economical, easy to handle tublings. We have large quantities – over 100,000 stems in stock!

Live stakes: we cut our bioengineering materials – live stakes, whips, and mattress materials– to comply with State regulatory specifications. Materials are cut to order and stored in a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment. Large quantities available!

Native Seed Mixes: Mellow Marsh Farm has over 60 years of collective experience formulating native seed mixes. Our Standard Mixes are designed specifically for ecoregions of the Southeast and include the MMF Riparian Buffer Mix, MMF Swale Mix, and MMF Stabilization Mix. We also formulate custom mixes tailored to your project site and budget.
