Vegetation for a Pond Clay Berm
I recently cleared husache overgrowth from a shallow (3 foot) one acre pond which was built with a clay berm around it. Well water is pumped into the pond; there is no natural drainage. Much of the berm is now bare and I'm wondering what grass seed to plant on the berm which is about 8 to 12 feet wide and 4 feet high.Pond is located on an 80 acre partially cleared ranch with a wildlife exemption located about 10 miles north northeast of Beevile, Tx.

Howdy! Thanks for the question. There are lots of option for you. I'm assuming you want to establish a warm season perennial grass. If so, I would think about common bermudagrass, Little Bluestem, or Indian grass. All of these can be sewn from seed and are readily available. If you need a source, let me know. Pogue Seed Company in Kenedy is a great place to buy seed. I hope this helps.
Thank you Matt!
You are welcome! Let me know if I can assist you in the future.
