Kathryn and DavidYes. Wildflower meadows need maintenance, but much less than a lawn. They also provide habitat for beneficial garden partners.

Carrie SchmidtI love these types of lawns but I've seen some turn into just weeds, I'm curious how you keep such a natural wildflower lawn without flower less weeds running a muck (I've seen one yard start beautiful like this and now it's not very appealing)

Carrie SchmidtAlso if you have kiddos they can't play in the area without trampling it - I wonder if it might work to at least have a ground cover/grass path through it in the case

Deborah TracyI think a lawn or flowers much better than a dirt yard but it certainly doesn't bring the value down. Seems to me it would bring it up . shouldn't do anything really . It should be an Improvement

Carmine PescatoreI was told that the custom of a low cut lawn was to show that you were so wealthy that you didn't need the land for grazing. European nobles.

Bettie BeswickI wouldn't do it in the front lawn and I agree that it will make fighting weeds impossible. I like flowers and I like wild flowers but I like mowed grass and neatness too.

Charlotte PritchardLawns are high maintenance and low interest. I watched with glee as my last blade of grass was removed.

Mary Anne DesfossesNo problems with Hemerocallis gall midge? This is the first time in 3 or 4 years that I got some "normal" flowers. Stella d'Oro, though, does not seem to be affected.

Nancy HaysMy very first plants were daylilies. They did so well. Encouraged me to try other plants. That was 25 years ago and today I'm passionate about gardening. I love ❤️ our site for all the benefits I receive!

Fall-blooming anemones (Anemone x hybrida) are very pretty and very aggressive. Not sure which cultivar this one is but it spreads underground and has completely taken over one end of a garden bed. Dig it out and it pops up everywhere. We used to call these Japanese anemones but they're actually native to China. ... See MoreSee Less
