8 Reasons To Plant A Meadow Instead Of Lawn

Meadows make better sense than lawns, and if you don’t believe us – here are 8 reasons why it’s so!

  1. They use less water than lawns. Once established, a tailored but textured meadow of began thriving on twice-a-month waterings. Plus, its slightly disheveled effect is more interesting to look at than lawn.
  2. They mimic wild landscapes. A flat-topped boulder, which looks as though it could host a waterfall during rains, edges a stream-like tumble of river rocks in a corner of the garden.
  3. They can fit anywhere, for example, a grassy blend can add a touch of the wild between a city sidewalk and the front fence.
  4. They help wildlife. Increase biodiversity by planting grasses and flowering plants closer together so that they’ll mingle.
