Landscaping with Wildflowers for Natural Beauty

07/14/2020

 Benefits of a Wildflower Garden

 *Plant and sustain a habitat (food source) for pollinators Provide 
    shelter and food for wildlife
 *Prevent Erosion
 *Improve Water Quality

 *Low Maintenance and affordable
 *Beauty in texture, color and natural greenery

Choosing the area for a Wildflower Garden
Wildflower Gardens are expected to be informal and may look a little untidy. With a few years the
wildflowers will grow and reproduce on their own creating a backyard oasis that is uniquely yours.


The general formula for planting wildflowers is

*1/4 lb for 250-500 square feet
*1/2 lb for 500-1000 square feet

*1 lb for 1000-2000 square feet

We like this generous equation as it allows you to plant the seeds dense enough to out-compete the weeds.
