We starting prepping for a wildflower meadow this week. Most people do not realize that creating a wildflower meadow isn’t as easy as throwing some seed. It’s much more involved than that, with the whole process taking upwards of a year. Most meadows fail due to plant competition so creating a sustainable meadow starts will eliminating competition. This is, by far, the longest part of the process. We start by clearing the future meadow to bare ground and then managing that bare ground for at least a garden season. Once regrowth has been eliminated, it’s time to seed the meadow.

The after video. Next step is to blow off the vegetation and clean up the edges with a string trimmer. We will then manage this area for the rest of this year with the plan to seed in the spring of 2020. Pressure is on. Wedding on the property in July 2020. Hoping we can get some annuals flowering a couple of months after seeding. Stat tuned
