Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix. per oz
Over years and years of observation, there are a handful of native wildflowers we frequently find successfully making their living right in folks’ organic lawns. Wildflower lawns are naturally springing up without any effort or attention. Three unique species we notice recurrently and perpetually in hundreds of Albany, Saratoga, Niskayuna NY lawns over the past decade. These flowers blend in well with the turf and present as evergreen with zero fertilizer or irrigation. They’re tough enough and steppable to endure as soccer/baseball fields. Wildflower lawns are the lowest maintenance lawn option on the market. If a homeowner decided to go easy on the late summer/fall mowing routine, they’d find secret pockets of petite flowers all over the property… and the butterflies and pollinators would find them too. Specifically, the Pearl Crescent butterfly and the Silver Checkerspot butterfly populations will thrive in a region with these wildflower lawns. These butterflies need the Asters to complete their life cycles: effortless habitat restoration work.
An ounce of our wildflower lawn seed mix contains enough seed to heavily seed 1/4 of an acre lawn, or more spaciously seed 1/2 acre. Adding this wildflower lawn seed mix to an existing organically managed lawn space is a low effort required input with a high return of new productive habitat space. The land is always trying to repair itself and restore itself to its preferred state. Depending on the site, and the ecosystem the “preferred state” of the ecosystem may be prairie, meadow, wetland, forest, grassland, bog or tundra. It’s our job as ecologists or responsible land stewards to figure out what the land is telling us it wants to be. When we can decipher through observation what the land is doing, cooperating with it becomes elementary.
Proprietary. Asters + Yarrow with flowers that sparkle like diamonds + stars.
