A drought tolerant meadow is an excellent replacement for resource intensive, inefficient lawn. This mixture of perennial bunchgrasses and herbaceous flowering natives will create a dynamic ecosystem right in your front yard. Consider combining with one of our other seed blends (like Nature Mix or Foothill Mix…) or plant additional low, speading perennials for added color and textures.
The most effective way to establish a native grassland would be to plant the main components, (the perennial plants and grasses), from containers. Be sure to include grassland plants including White Sage, Goldenrod, Penstemon, and Flowering Buckwheat. Then sow Meadow Mix in between the new plants to fill out the new grassland.
