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 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!
