Wildflowers are an alternative to lawns and borders, and can provide a display for many months. Choose from annual meadows that provide a one-off show or perennial meadows that persist from year to year.
Wildflower meadows continue to be popular features, either as part of the garden itself or maybe a roadside verge, grassy bank, orchard or field. Every site will have its unique features: not least the resources available for meadow management: size, access, mechanical and financial constraints.
Smith Grayson can create a suitable management plan for your individual site. The standard approach follows the traditional meadow management regime of:
- An early summer flowering of grasses and wildflowers
- Mid or late summer cut – remove all the cutting
- Late summer mow or graze – or late summer second crop
