Meadowscaping Wildflower Seed Mix 1/2 oz.
Meadowscaping is the easiest land management practice a landowner can practice. American Meadows are a staple of our natural history. Native prairie and meadow species can stand up to quite a variety of moisture situations and sunlight/part shade situations. Meadowscaping is the practice of removing invasive plants in open fields, then simply adding native species wildflower seeds. (Nature abhors a vacuum.) A more sophisticated version of meadow planning involves a sheet mulching preparation phase. Organic lasagna garden method is another way to express sheet mulching. This practice is a very effective way to build a new meadow.
The native prairie plants tend to be on the tall side and do well in open fields or wooded edge spaces. The native plants found in meadows put the “wild” in the concept of wildflowers.
