Planting instructions: Seedbed or area to be seeded should be prepared by light cultivation and weed removal. Optimum planting season is November 15 through March 31, just prior to anticipated rain. Broadcast seed evenly over soil surface. Rake the area lightly to incorporate seed into the top 1/4″- 1/2″ of soil. A top dressing of composted organic mulch (not manure) is recommended to help maintain even moisture during the germination period.
Maintenance: Irrigate just enough (between rains) to maintain soil moisture during
germination. After germination until initial flowering, sprinkle the area to a depth of about 2″.
After flowering, little to no supplemental water should be needed.


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.
