Many gardeners are looking to replace traditional grass lawns with easy, colorful wildflowers. More and more gardeners are realizing that traditional grass lawns are not their favorite use of resources and time - and they also lack food and shelter for pollinators and beneficial bugs. Replace some - or all - of your lawn lawn with pollinator-friendly wildflowers, to cut down on watering and mowing, and you'll also provide much needed food and shelter for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
The problem many gardeners were running into when trying to replace their front lawns with wildflowers were certain regulations from their HOA (home-owners associations) and other groups. So when formulating our new wildflower lawn mixtures, we decided to provide two HOQ-approved options with wildflowers that grow under 24" in height: Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix - Simplicity and Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix - Variety.
Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix - Simplicity
Our Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix - Simplicity is for gardeners who face lawn regulations or are simply looking for a more toned-down wildflower blend for the front of their home. This mixture contains 9 shorter annuals that bloom quickly and last through frost, with just one or two varieties blooming at one time. This mix creates a tidy, manicured look that is low to the ground and should be HOA-approved, while also providing color and habitat for pollinators.
Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix - Variety
Our Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix - Variety is for gardeners who may live in a more rural area or don’t have any guidelines on what you can plant in your front yards. This low maintenance mixture contains 20 different shorter annuals that will create big swaths of color from spring all the way through frost. Plant this mixture for variety and something different blooming every few weeks. This mixture will create a big statement in the front of any home and will sure to become the talk of your friends and neighbors, while also attracting wildlife to your landscape.
Both of these colorful mixtures contain only annuals, which means although some varieties may self-seed, you’ll want to plant every year for the full effect. If you’re looking for a more “one and done” type planting, try one of our Wildflower Lawn Seed Mixes that includes perennial varieties, or Try a Regional Wildflower Seed Mix.
Our Wildflower Lawn Seed Mix - Simplicity is great for gardeners with HOA regulations.
