How to Grow a Meadow

Are you dreaming of a wildflower meadow? Do you want a non-stop display of flowers blooming from spring through fall? Would you like to attract butterflies, pollinators and songbirds to your property?
 


If you are a homeowner, landscape architect, or someone simply interested in landscaping in an ecological, cost effective and aesthetically pleasing manner, incorporating native wildflowers into your outdoor designs will bring you many benefits.

Natural landscaping with wildflowers and native grasses improves the environment and increases our connection to nature by attracting diverse varieties of songbirds, pollinators and butterflies to our properties. 


And the best part?

 

Growing a wildflower meadow is simple!

While creating a long-living, sustainable wildflower meadow does require time and patience, it's really not hard to do. Your future meadow could be a small, open, sunny patch in a corner of your yard, or it could be several acres. In the long haul, you will have created a natural ecosystem right on your property that is sustainable, requiring no watering or fertilizers and only minimal maintenance.

Not only is this good for the environment, it saves you time and money!

No matter what size you want your meadow to be, an understanding of how to grow wildflowers and native grasses is essential for success. Through the following links, we have posted the knowledge we have accumulated, based on our actual experience "in the field" for over 25 years to provide you with a "step by step" process that is easy to follow.


We encourage you to read through this carefully as you plan for your own wildflower meadow. All the pages are printable as well so you can create your own "hard copy" to read.
