Meadow experiment was a success

A few months ago I wrote about how The Man was going to convert some of our existing lawn to “meadow” as a way to save on water and to hopefully prevent another chaffer beetle infestation. At this point in time, I am happy to report that the experiment seems to be a success….

This is the upper lawn area, seeded with wildflower seeds.

These small flowers are in the lower lawn area – this was planted with a “grass alternative” from West Coast Seeds. Small flowers…very pretty.

This is another part of the lower lawn. Lots of small daisies….i hope that some of these end up self-seeding for next year.

    Beautiful…and I will bet the birds and the bees love it too! I love the meadow.

    I have a “meadow” in the back of my property – just stopped mowing it, have some bird friendly bushes planted in it (4) and some perennials (9). And I have a beautiful 15 foot long 10 foot wide oval of lemon balm and milkweed at one end that nature planted for me! It’s ratty but I don’t have the cash to pay someone to do a meadow conversion, yet! Someday!
