We have a feeling Fedco’s now-retired visionary founder CR Lawn would approve of this alternative lawn mix. Ever the unorthodox strategist, he would find efficiency in sowing a low-maintenance and diverse collection of short and creeping plants—leaving more time for his beloved vegetable garden—while appreciating the beauty of flowers and clovers intermingled with fine fescue grass. Includes 13 species of annuals and perennials, many of which feed pollinators, and can reseed in the right conditions. The smallest packet size will plant about 125 sq ft. This lawn is sure to create a buzz in your neighborhood.
Broadcast in spring or late fall in a well-prepared weed-free seedbed in a sunny spot. Lightly cover seed and keep moist during establishment and dry spells. For an in-depth guide to converting your lawn, see the book Lawns Into Meadows.Especially attractive to pollinators.③
