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.
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 not really that hard to do. But, like anything in life, there is a right way and wrong way to do things. In our 30 plus years of experience "in the field" of creating wildflower meadows, we have learned that the best way to be successful is to observe and replicate nature's methods as we cannot "force" plants to grow where nature has not intended them to grow.
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.
We encourage you to read through this carefully as you plan for your own wildflower meadow.
