If your yard features a hill or slope that is difficult to reach, if you're experiencing erosion, or if you are looking for solutions for flood or fire restoration, an easy-to-grow wildflower mix can help.
Many wildflowers - in particular annual wildflowers - are quick to establish, even in poor soil conditions. They can quickly fill in empty spaces with attractive flowers and foliage while stabilizing soil and helping to restore soil health. Over time, deep-rooted perennial wildflowers will create a fibrous, interconnecting web of roots that will help to stabilize the landscape against harsh weather that may cause further erosion, all while presenting a glorious show of colors. As the meadow grows, root systems help keep the soil intact and can even improve soil health by adding organic matter.
"We had a pesky back hill that had erosion and was hard to mow. A friend suggested a wildflower meadow as a simple-to-maintain and beautiful option. We are in year one, and already it is splendid! We followed the directions carefully and have seen a great result." – Don W.
