Because the Grickis’ property is in Rhode Island, Mike has been able to stop by in person and take in the beauty of their meadow firsthand. He was so inspired by their flower choices he created the All Annual Bold Color mix, so that anyone looking to replace their lawn with colorful annuals can dig in!
So if you’re on the fence about whether or not you should replace some (or all!) of your lawn with wildflowers, we recommend you take the leap. If you’re not sure whether it’s something you want to keep permanently, plant an annual mixture of wildflowers in the first season. These flowers grow more shallow roots and can easily be tilled under and re-seeded in the next year.
But we think once you’re sitting in your kitchen drinking coffee and looking outside at a meadow bursting with flowers, bees, and butterflies, you’ll never go back to that boring, green lawn. And just like the Grickis’, your wildflower meadow will transform your world.
