Thank you for visiting Ohio Prairie Nursery's website. We're glad you're here.

Whether this is new to you or you are already using native seed, you are making a positive difference and an important contribution to the future. By using native grasses and native seeds in your landscape, you are helping to increase diversity and provide valuable habitat for other species of living things. Native insects, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds evolved alongside the native plants that support them.

The landscapes we create take resources to maintain. By using native material you are reducing the need for watering, pesticides and fertilizers. The deep root systems of most native species increase the ability of the soil to absorb water and help stabilize a stormwater network that is over capacity. You are also reducing erosion which helps keep our rivers and lakes clean!

Native plants help create a sense of place. By using the species that naturally belong in your yard or neighborhood you are keeping a connection to the botanical history of your area alive.

On behalf of the thousands of native insects, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds that don't have a voice...THANK YOU AND PRAIRIE ON!
