A Beautiful Quick Fix After Construction
Dear American Meadows:
In spring, 2006, we did a major renovation of our home, which is on 4 acres. We were left with a large area of dirt after the builders had graded the property. It was a mess and totally barren.
I decided to try a quick fix since there was no budget for landscaping after the build out!
I planted about 4 bags of your NorthEast Annual Mix in April and waited. It looked like a moonscape until June when things started to percolate. It was so much fun to wake up every morning to see what was new and exciting. The birds were attracted in a big way too!
We had people slowing down in their cars to take a look all summer long and I had a constant supply of cuttings for my flower vases. It was probably the biggest bang for my gardening buck that I ever had.

At American Meadows, we really thank the Maddelena Family in CT for sharing their story and photos. Whether it’s a new septic system, renovations, or a whole new home, when your property undergoes disruption, it’s a great time to install a wildflower meadow. The old growth is already removed, so with just minor preparation, you’re ready for seeding.
