RE-VEGETATION GRASSES: bluedale Wholesale Nursery is a major supplier of grasses for re-vegetation of native bushland, riparian zones & eco-projects. We have also supplied native grasses for many commercial projects from highway regeneration projects to buffer zone plantings in new residential sub-divisions. Weed control can be by far the single biggest issue to contend with particularly on degraded sites.  Using carefully selected grasses in your core planting will provide the necessary weed control, giving smaller and less robust plants (which have difficulty out-competing exotic weeds) a chance to establish.  

Native grasses are also widely used for effective ground cover, soil and dune stabilisation,  as well as for their natural beauty used by commercial and residential landscapers for their decorative and feature planting. bluedale also grows a selection of exotic grasses like Pennisetum advena ‘Rubrum’ – Purple Fountain Grass  – loved by landscape architects and gardeners alike.
